It should be easy, and pretty straight forward if you are currently on 2.0.15.
Only thing is, you will lose your modifications, and your installed custom themes may not work anymore. So make backups of everything (database included) before you try, in case you want to go back for some reason.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas

Please, do mind that SMF 2.1 is still under development, we do not recomment using it in production sites because you may encounter errors or bugs.
