<shrug> I didn't find them confusing at all. I just downloaded the patch it said to use and installed it on my MP2100. Done.
I think you might just be making it much more complicated than it needs to be.
From the email that started this thread:
2.1 (71J059)-1 English 2x00
2.1 (73J186)-1 eMate
2.1 (74J185)-1 German 2x00
So, assuming you have an English 2x00 you need patch file 71J059
