The TL2005 structure is the same as the TL2004 structure. Most of the
changes have been in the structure of the font directory. I know that I just
made a backup of texmf.local, just in case, and had the i-installer do the
rest. It may just be that maps and fonts in your personal texmf tree
(~/Library/texmf) aren't ``seen'' by the installer; deal with that after
installation. I didn't have a problem. I then had to match the structure of
texmf.local in my personal texmf tree. Finally I had to do some `sudo updmap
--enable Map XXXX.map' since the map files where now where updmap would find
them. It all went pretty smoothly.

Good Luck,
