Ipod 2.1 updater for Win98 Users


So I ordered an iPod and was unlucky enough to have it come with a CD that tries to instal 2.1 rather than 2.01 which you can work around. Needless to say the same method doesn't work.

Anyways, I copied all the files off the CD to my desktop in a folder I created simply called iPod. I then had a look around here and came to the following directory:

"program files\WinRoot\runtime_ipod_updater_dir"

In this directory is "Updater.exe" - click on that and a program opens titled 'iPod Software 2.1 Updater V2' which then searches for my iPod (which is currenlty being charged by the mains and so is not connected so it says "iPod is not connected"). Anyways, just wondering if this is an indication that if my iPod were connected and found I could update it to 2.1 through 98SE by this method, because I'm assuming that at the end of the day, all you're instlaling off the CD is this 'Updater.exe' which seems to be running fine at the moment?

Just want to verify before I try in case it actually mucks it up.
