thanks for your reply, linus. sorry about the iriver
comment :)
quick follow-up questions:

a) version 2.0 has recording from fm too, or just from
external sources?

b) i loaded rockbox on the jukebox before even
glancing at the archos installation cd. is it too late
now to install archos firmware in order to have the
rolo option if for some reason i decide to try to
figure it out? (is archos firmware even what is on
that cd, or is the firmware already on the jukebox?).
if i can still load it on there, WHERE do i unzip/load
it? (in layperson's terms would be much appreciated :)

and sorry for yet one more dumb question, but when you
say i can just reboot my jukebox to revert back to
rockbox after using rolo to switch to archos, you mean
simply turning off the jbox and then turning it on
again? it'll automatically start up using rockbox?
thanks so much - as you can tell, i'm a total neophyte
when it comes to these things
