Question need help rooting

I'm finally rooting my Captivate and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I'm currently running 2.3.5 Gingerbread.

I'm sure that I have the zip file in the right spot as I emailed myself the file and downloaded it from my phone. When I reboot the phone while holding down the volume buttons the screen will read as...

Android system recovery <3e>

Samsung Recovery Utils
- for BML -

Enter: POWER Key, Select : Vol UP / Vol Down
reboot system now
apply update from sdcard
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition


--Copying media files...
Successfully copies meida files.

# MANUAL MODE #

--Appling Multi-CSC...
Installing Multi-CSC
Applied the CSC-code 'ATT'
Successfully applied mutli-CSC.


There is no option to "reinstall new packages" or "install recovery packages" or anything similar.

Help and thank you!

Went about it a different way and got it rooted.

I used this post.

It appears that my post on the Captivate Root was too late. Oh well. :/
Here it is if you want to look at it:
Captivate Root

I'm not sure if it helps at all, but just for others that have this issue. Sometimes, you have so many files in your SD card that you can't see the files, and you have to scroll down using the volume rocker to view them.
