Uh you realize the captivate is still on eclair right. The captivate won't be getting gingerbread for a long time if EVER. You can't go from eclair to gingerbread on the galaxy S, it needs the froyo bootloader to update to the gingerbread one.

The Captivate is on Froyo actually. I figured, when they said Galaxy S, they meant ALL Galaxy S phones. Any evidence that it won't be getting Gingerbread? From what you said, I suppose I'll have to upgrade her to Froyo first.
