i have downloaded the following text but dont understand the
part between the *'s

GD-5000
When you have downloaded the file, unzip it and save the resulting .exe file to the C:\ directory. Create a DOS boot disk, as detailed above, and boot into DOS mode. Change to the C:\ directory, then type:
50UPH140.exe
*You will be asked to specify the position of your drive on the IDE bus, then the file will run and your f/w will be updated*

May I ask why you want to update the firmware?

Is there any particular problem that you are having? I don't think you can 'go back' to the old one if you're not happy with the changes it makes......
