Lenovo System Updates Errors (3000 N100)

Hi All,


Today I used 'system update' to check any critical updates for 'Rescue & Recovery'. I was surprised when it suggested these two optional upgrades simaltaneously:


200mb upgrade from version 3.1 to 4.0

196mb upgrade from version 3.1 to 4.21


Add to that:


73mb intel wireless driver update to version (my system driver version

Few things I couldn't understand:


Why System Update gives option to upgrade to an older version(3.1 to 4.0) when newer version (3.1 to 4.21) is available?

Why System Update doesn't realize my laptop has more recent driver version installed?

Why FILE SIZES are SO BIG? (specially driver updates, compared to those on Intel website)?



System details: Lenovo 3000 N-100  0768-DKU WinXP Home Edition SP2


PS: I cancelled all the above updates.

3000 N100-0768DKU
XP Home 5.01.2600 SP2
Ubuntu 8.04(hardy)
