    You're using the stock recovery image, aren't you? There is no Nandroid or anything besides sdcard: apply update.zip unless you flash SPRecovery or ClockworkMod Recovery.

    You need to replace the stock recovery with either SPRecovery or ClockworkMod. The free version of ROM Manager will do both of those. ClockworkMod is the first option and SPRecovery is under "Alternative Recovery" towards the bottom.
