Question Apply to CS before Step 1?

I have already passed step 2 CK, I'm preparing for step 1 which I'm planning to take in October. I just received a notification from ECFMG stating :

"If you need to pass Step 2 CS to participate in the 2014 Match, you are strongly encouraged to apply for Step 2 CS now. If you do not register early and schedule a test date as soon as possible, you may not be able to obtain a test date in 2013"

So my questions are:
1. Can I apply for CS before taking step 1? (assuming that I pass step 1) or
2. Do I have to pass step 1 before applying for CS? &/or
3. Can I apply for both at the same time? (taking the risk of not passing step1)

You don't need to pass any Step to take Step 2 CS, so go ahead and apply!
