  Q71: Where are the FM controls for the FM Recorder?
  A71: There aren't any. This is not yet implemented under Rockbox. FM Recorder
       support in general is new. Be patient.
+ Q72: I renamed ajbrec.ajz (or archos.mod on the player) to boot the
+ standard Archos firmware, but it still gets loaded!
+ A72: The Archos firmware, when looking on the hard disk, only matches
+ the first 10 characters of the file name. So it will happily load
+ ajbrec.ajz.bak or ajbrec.ajz-20030404 and so on. To prevent this
+ from happening, give it a file name that differs in the first 10
+ characters, e.g., ajbrec.bak.ajz.
