I changed the wording om the page, and just to make sure:

If you have the Fix2010 or some other fix for the 2010 problem  
installed, you need to first clear the alarms using the Y2010  
Diagnostic tool, and then remove the Fix2010 package itself via the  
Extras Drawer before applying the 71J059 or the other patches.
