I've saved the IPSW for my iPhone into my documents, but when i try and find it in RedSn0w, I can't find it anywhere. Can somebody please help?

Stop using Internet exploder to download. It saves it as a zip file. Rename it to ipsw.

If you don't see the .zip at the end, google "windows show file types"

other than what has JonSeals suggested, you can also copy the exact location of the IPSW by browsing to the location and copy the address, then on redsn0w, just paste and select the correct IPSW..
