Thanks. I think I have it.

One further question.
Once everything is set up properly, will the sansa boot in to original firmware automatically when I plug it in to make file transfers, or do I have to manually boot in to the original firmware each time, before I connect it?

    Yes, but the problem with the most recent boot loader, as I understand it, is that it won't allow the unit to boot in to the original firmware. I have the previous boot loader, which is suppose to be fine. I understand there is a file that has to be copied to the 16 mb recovery drive in order to recover the original boot loader, but I'm not sure where to find this file. Can somebody tell me?

  This was the case up until yesterday when we released a new sansapatcher version (0.5) which should work properly for everyone, including loading the original firmware.

  In order to get back to a point where you can use sansapatcher again, see this page:
