In simple steps:

1.) Make a back-up of your current database using gbak from 1.5.2
2.) Restore the back-up to a distinct database name to check if
everything is ok
3.) Stop the FB 1.5.2 service
4.) Make a physical copy of the database (you know it's better to be
twice safe)
5.) Uninstall FB 1.5.2
6.) Instal FB 2.0
7.) Read the release notes
8.) Restore the 1.5.2 back-up using 2.0 gbak tool

see you !
