Thanks so much. I hope its as simple as it seems.

I also want to consolidate the different sections on the forum, currently there are around eight, is it possible to whittle them down to two or three (like on topic / off topic) without losing any posts?

Thanks again.

Download the YaBB 2.1 package.  Run the Setup process to install the board.  Then, go back to Setup.pl to convert your boards.

There's an article on the codex explaining how to upgrade, but I can't seem to access the codex right now.
  

You should always perform a complete back-up before making any changes or modifications to your forums.
