Default I need help with rockbox intructions for Sansa fuze v1.

A few days ago I got a sansa fuze from amazon, it was great and all, but I absolutely needed to install rockbox on it because I have ALAC, OGG, and APE music files (and FLACs and 320 MP3s), which the stock firmware can't play back. But rockbox also looks awesome. So I went ahead and installed rockbox but I bricked it. I have no idea how our what I did wrong. I followed the instructions from the rockbox official website if you're wondering. I got the FAT is corrupted message and when I connected it to the computer to fix the FAT file my computer wouldn't recognize it and it would get kinda hot too. Amazon so nice as always allowed me to return it for a refund. I just ordered another one and I still want to get rockbox on it, I believe it is v1 because it the firmware version is V01.02.3IF Am I correct? . Could someone please give me the details of how to do it because the instructions given by rockbox are extremely confusing (especially the bootloader part)? The part that's confusing is the part where it tells me to navigate to a folder in command prompt in the bootloader installation, wtf does that even mean? I'm sorry if I sound frustrated, because I kinda am and I'm extremely scared if bricking it again. Any help would be great. (EDIT: if this is not the right subreddit for this which one is?). I'm still very confused, does the rockbox utility install the bootloader automatically or is it a separate process? If it is a separate process then how do you do it? What should I do if the utility doesn't recognize my Fuze? I'm so scared to brick it again. Thanks to anyone who helps.
