Hi, could someone please help me with this MN thing?

I decided that since the cold wallet method is possible, that I would like to set up a masternode.
I followed President Chaeplin's guide and did everything except for uploading the wallet over with scp.
when i do "darkcoind getinfo" I get:
"version" : 101001,
"protocolversion" : 70018,
"walletversion" : 60000,
"balance" : 0.00000000,
"blocks" : 79602,
"timeoffset" : 0,
"connections" : 1,
"proxy" : "",
"difficulty" : 4022.18928288,
"testnet" : false,
"keypoololdest" : 1402740502,
"keypoolsize" : 101,
"paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
"mininput" : 0.00001000,
"errors" : ""

So is everything there looking alright?

Then, can I make the cold wallet from my home pc (Windows 8.1)?
I tried running darkcoind to get the masternodeprivkey, but Windows didn't know what to do with it.
Do I need to do it in darkcoin-qt? I'm guessing the RC version?

Also, if my main wallet is on my pc, I'm guessing I must move main wallet, create new wallet, get new wallet address, swap old wallet back, send 1000 drk (or is it 1000 + tx fee?), then swap new wallet (with 1000 drk) back to do masternode genkey?

Thanks in advance if anyone can help me, will be much appreciated! :)
