Upgrade Via Webtools

Hey everyone,

I have a Brocade 2005-B16 that I would like to upgrade to 6.1.1d from 5.1.0d. I understand you have to go from 5.1 to 5.3, then 5.3 to 6.0, and finally 6.0 to 6.1. I am currently having difficulty understanding the process using the webtools. I have downloaded 5.3.0 and I am not sure what file to point the UI at in order to kick off the install. What file and where do I point the webtools at in order to upgrade from 5.1.0d to 5.3.0? Do I have to do a make install on a Linux box? I downloaded the windows .zip version of the Fab OS install package and I do not see a release.plist in the root directory of the extracted zip file.

If someone could help me out or point me in the direction of some good documentation I would appreciate it. Thanks.
