    Sometimes it's tough to promote a sub to a top level site.  

    1. Create the /sites/subsite1 top level site, using the same template as the subsite
    2. Export the /subsite5 site using stsadm -o export -url ______________ -filename c:\path\filename.bak
    3. Import to the new site using stsadm -o import -url _______________ -filename c:\path\filename.bak -overwrite
