Okay, I took the plunge to DW CS6. I held on to GoLive as long as I could. What made it easy was signing up for the Creative Cloud.
So I have a pretty big website that was made in GL CS2. How can I salvage it so I don't have to re-create every page in DW? I know some scripts and behavors will have to be re-worked to DW.

There has been a discussion on that: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/743737
But you're talking a big website. I recommend you learn Dreamweaver and rebuild it. Lots things have changed for putting together websites since GoLive was axed by Adobe. I would consider a redesign and build out the entire website in a /test/ folder on your server until you have it completed. Then migrate to the new website on your server and get rid of the old site done in GoLive.
Yeah, that's probably the best thing to do is to just go ahead and start from scratch. I have a subscription to lynda.com so I have a good resource to learn Dreamweaver. I could probably move all of image folders into the DW site and not have to re-create them.
I would suggest not trying to learn dreamweaver until you have a decent grasp of html and css (if you don't already, i know when I made the switch from GL I didn't). It will greatly reduce the headaches of making the transition.
DW is NOT a replacement for GL. It is much more geared toward people who understand what's going on "under the hood" so to speak and doesn't offer the same level of "do it for me" that GL had.
