Step by Step vB transition guide?

    I'm currently running a fairly stock install of vB 4.2 with the CMS. Is there a step-by-step guide anywhere of transitioning to XenForo? I'm assuming these are the basic steps, just want to make sure I don't forget anything.

    1. Purchase XenForo
    2. Install XenForo
    3. Install portal add-on (for CMS like funtionallity)
    4. Import vB data (users/threads/posts/PMs/etc)
    5. Install redirect scripts to maintain SEO?

    Number 5 is the one I'm most uncertain about. I want to minimize impacts on search rankings. I'd like to install xenForo in a different directory than the current vB install if that won't complicate it.

    Are there any steps I'm missing?
