If you have a brand new system you probably dont have the config file of the 
old digikam which helps finding the old file. I also assume you have already 
started digikam 1.0-betax once. Then you can change in the setup the database 
directory to the old file hierarchy. digikam will prompt you about finding the 
old database, choose to upgrade.
