As far as I know, there is no way to update the firmware through anything other than Windows. Libmtp doesn't provide a direct conduit to wherever the Zen's firmware is stored on the player; plus, I'm pretty sure updating/installing firmware requires a special handshake from the PC-based updater that places the player in firmware-loader mode. There are no Linux or Mac clients that do that as far as I know. The best you can do under Linux is to run the updater through WINE.
