How do I load a cal-kit definition from disk into an 8720D?

I want to use an 85032B calibration kit in my 8720D. This is what I have done in an attempt to do this. 

1) Formatted a floppy as DOS in the 8720D. 

2) Gone to http://na.tm.agilent.com/pna/caldefs/stddefs.html

3) Select the "X" by "85032B/E 50 Ohm Type-N Calibration Kit" (note it says this is supported in firmware, but it is not. Only the 85032F is in my firmware). 

4) Gone to http://na.tm.agilent.com/pna/caldefs/PNA/85032BE.htm

5) Clicked "Download"

6) Saved the file 85032BE.ckt to the floppy. This file is http://na.tm.agilent.com/pna/caldefs/PNA/85032BE.ckt which is a binary file. 

7) Put the floppy in the 8720D

When I look on the 8720D on one of the file menus, and select internal disk, I can see the file 85032BE.ckt. But I can't for the life of me work out how to load this file from disk, so the 85032B calibration constants are known to the VNA. 

I've hunted around the "CAL" menu too, but can't find any ways to load a cal-kit definition from disk. 

I've looked in the manual, and can't seem to find the method there either. 

I must be missing something.
