Thanks for the quick reply, Chase.  I wanted to make sure that I wasn't screwing something up before I blindly went forward and updated the iTouch.  Now that I understand what is happening, I will update to OS 3.0 and then should be able use the official version.

It looks like a nice piece of work and I look forward to using it.
