need to get the old edublogs theme ready for BP

I am still usign hte old version (heavily customized) of your edublogs theme and would now like to modify it to be ready for an upcoming BP installation.

Since I have never tinkered with a BP theme, can I get some links from you guys about what needs to be done?

Is this plugin any good? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-template-pack/ its supposed to help me change a theme to make it BP ready....
