Hello Gerald,
to update your NR try simply using this tutorial: https://nodered.org/docs/getting-started/upgrading, once you update to the most recent version you can then install the node directly from the NR interface.

I’m afraid you may have some performance issues. As far as I know the IOT 2000 has some performance issues because it’s low processor capabilities. Maybe you need a better hardware for playing with Node-RED.

first check which version of node.js you have… - as that may need upgrading first (if possible) - as the latest versions of Node-RED need 4.8…x at least.
