[Zope] merging zodb's

I have a zodb from a dead zope instance that I wanted to merge in to another 
running zope. I thought I could use a mount point to do this and just specify 
the old zodb for the storage in my mount point. 

alas, this did not work as expect. After making the modification in my 
zope.conf like this:

<zodb_db support >
    # ssw file store
      path $INSTANCE/var/srvx-Data.fs
    mount-point /support

And then restarting zope and adding the mount point -- I see nothing 
underneath it.

So, I assume this is NOT a valid way to merge to zodb's together? 

Does anyone have an suggestions on a way I might combine 2 zodb's?
