I would have thought that a PDF file detailing the update procedure was included in the download.

I have just downloaded the firmware and there is indeed a folder containing the firmware update procedure. I suggest you download it again if you don't have the full zip file.

The .FIR is the firmware file inside the zip which it sounds like you have already opened...

Just drag the .FIR file to the root of your CF card and pop it into the camera

You dont need to 'open' the FIR file,just extract the file to a folder of your choice , then just copy it to a cf card and pop it into your camera. Then follow the instructions in the pdf. Note that the cf card needs to be one that has been formated in your camera.
