You probably shouldn't have used Time Machine to create a new bootable drive; Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper do a much better job of that. But now that you['ve done it, I'd recomend uninstalling all of the FCS apps using this utility: http://www.digitalrebellion.com/fcsremover/
Once you've properly uninstalled the apps, reinstall them from the original discs (or disc images).

My install disks are for version 2.0.1 and my latest running version is 6.0.6 (I assume from free s/w updates because this is my wife's machine and I never use it except when things go bad and I'm the repair guy). Am I going to be able to get back to the latest version using software updates from FCS?

If you're referring to Final Cut Pro 2, then no; each upgrade had to be purchased (upgrade pricing was typically $499.00 USD) and each upgrade required its own set of install discs. Upgrades ALWAYS required install discs. However, updates to any given version were free downloads.
But if you're referring to Final Cut Studio 2, FCP 6 was one of the included apps so those install discs that you have may be right. Once you reinstall from the install discs, run software update to get to the 0.6 level.

Final Cut Studio, yes. Thanks DH. I decided to make a CCC of my old boot drive (Macintosh HD), copy that to my new boot drive and use that. I had made a Clone of my old HD onto an external drive for security and it seems to have done a great job of cloning the HD.
Do you know of any reason why this wouldn't work well?
I will keep my old HD intact and bootable (although it keeps failing) until everything works and then zero it out.

All has been going well after cloning etc. now however when I am working in FCP and tried to export using compressor, I'm getting the spinning wheel and an error report and it shuts down.
Any suggestions. Srange as DVD studio pro works perfectly.
