How does one go about updating firmware for a Brocade 300 switch

How does one go about updating firmware for a Brocade 300 switch? Seems like Brocade's web page is a nice trip to nowhere's ville when you want something as simple as a firmware upgrade.

1) You need the New Firmware Package ( is availbale for Donwload by with a Valide Maintenance Contract )

2) Your can upgrade from the WebTools,

3) .....or trough Telnet with the command "firmwaredownload"

Thanks.  I got ahold of a Brocade SE and he stopped by with the latest code on a thumb drive.  Then I followed your instructs.  Forgive my question/comment for the community.  I was just wondering why something as simple as an update isnt available for downloading.  I still installed it myself.  I could have done this 24 hours ago.
