Ok, I finally figured it out!! You need to flip the metal fixture that is on the bottom inside of the legs. If the fixture with the "J" shape cut out is up, it's for the crib rail. If the fixture with the plastic bumper is up, you can place the toddler rail on it.
I have the opposite problem - I can put it together as a toddler bed. The trick with that is that you put one of the long screws through both the hole at the SHORT end of the toddler bed side AND the metal flange from the springs into that end of the crib. The other long screw goes through the raised end of the toddler side into the end of the crib - where the child's head would be.
Is there supposed to be a plastic piece at the top of both ends of the crib on the side that does NOT go up and down? I can't seem to figure out how to put the crib side on.

I just bought this crib on Craig's list and the ad said it converts to both a day bed and toddler bed, however I didn't have any instructions so found the Pali website and requested an instruction manual for this bed - and they indicated it converts only to a toddler bed, but you have to have purchased the conversion kit, which is also avaiable on their website.
So I would recommend going to the pali website and requesting the manual ! Hope that helps.
