SetValue help?

Hi All,
Trying to run a basic field update, but getting error.

ClassList=["Tree_Canopy", "Impervious", "Vegetation", "Soil", "Water"]  AcEvalRas=(os.path.join(DirAc, "AcEvalRas_g"+str(i)+"i")) rows = arcpy.UpdateCursor(AcEvalRas) for row in rows:     if row.Value == 1:         row.SetValue(row.Class, ClassList[0])         row.SetValue(row.Ref, ClassList[0])         rows.updateRow(row)     elif row.Value == 2:         row.Class = row.getValue(ClassList[1])         row.Ref = row.getValue(ClassList[1])         rows.updateRow(row)     elif row.Value == 3:         row.Class = row.getValue(ClassList[2])         row.Ref = row.getValue(ClassList[2])         rows.updateRow(row)     elif row.Value == 4:         row.Class = row.getValue(ClassList[3])         row.Ref = row.getValue(ClassList[3])         rows.updateRow(row)

Error Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "X:\\", line 66, in <module>
    row.SetValue(row.Class, ClassList[0])
  File "C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Desktop10.0\arcpy\arcpy\arcobjects\", line 28, in __getattr__
    raise AttributeError("%s" % attr)
AttributeError: SetValue

Line 66 is the first "SetValue" line.

I have tried several different versions, where I use setValue and getValue. I even tried a setValue(row.Class, row.getValue(ClassList[0])). The first elif line seems the cleanest to me, but that gives a 99999 Failure to Execute error. From the error messages, I think the first SetValue from the code above is the best so far.

Does the syntax look okay? Any ideas would be great.

This is a raster dataset within a GDB. Fields "Class" and "Ref" are both text with default precision.
