Did you _really_ read the output from the extract script, which says 
something like...

"Now copy this file into your firmware folder.
EG. sudo cp firmware.fw /lib/firmware/`uname -r/'"

Are you _SURE_ you read the output from the extract script?

There was no "output" from the script.  I ran the script, a white screen popped up for less than a second, and then it went back to my desktop.  I think that is where my confusion is coming in at.
