I wanted to try this out on a default install of 6.1.1 using the system the installer sets up. Has anyone been able to do this?

When I run the SQL script to install the files, I am getting an error that no .help or .international tables exist.

I've looked at the generic scrip to create the db for WebGUI and I can't find those tables either. Are those older tables for pre 6.x versions?
