V1 & 10-30 lens firmware update. Please help!

I just finished downloading the new update for both the V1 and the 10-30 lens. I'm at the nervous stage right now because last year I tried updating the firmware on my Sony Blu-ray player and all went wrong. Something internally happened and I ended up sending it in for repairs. I soooo don't want to repeat a blunder. I am at the stage where it instructs one to place the bin file on the root directory of the card that was formatted within the camera. First of all, and please excuse my ignorance here, what do they mean by root directory?

When I display the firmware on the camera:

A 1.00
B 1.00
L 1.00
S - . - -

Would I be assuming correctly that ( L 1.00 ) is referring to the firmware of the lens?

Has anyone performed this procedure? I read through the info on Nikon's site and I failed to find where it might have mentioned what the updates were for. Does anyone know please?

Thanks for your help.
