[Loadstone] Problem After Installing the Latest Reelease

Hi Monty,
Actually, I should have said that I uninstalled my old version of Loadstone 
first, then installed the new version.  For some reason I thought I had to 
do that.  So perhaps I need to know how to reinstall the database, as I 
think I let Loadstone create one with no points in it.  I was fiddling 
around late at night and not entirely sure what I was doing.
