http://rockbox.haxx.se/twiki/bin/view/Main/BlindFlashing
And here's the full version:
http://rockbox.haxx.se/twiki/bin/view/Main/FlashingRockbox

Nothing is wiped, you need the .bin only once, for your very first flashing.
Imagine it like formatting the flash.

Yes, this is the standard update procedure.

No.

My webspace does, see the instructions about initial flashing.
