7. Apply the queries. Note that this step can take a while; it may also require additional space on your hard drive comparable with size of your tables.

[root@rt ~/rt-5.0.1] # mysql -u root -p rt5 < queries.sql
ERROR 1283 (HY000) at line 11: Column ‘Content’ cannot be part of FULLTEXT index
When I go step by step the the queries.sql, I find a single SQL command that fails:
mysql> ALTER TABLE Attachments MODIFY Content LONGBLOB NULL DEFAULT NULL;
ERROR 1283 (HY000): Column ‘Content’ cannot be part of FULLTEXT index
