You will have a FAT32 file structure on your Archos, just like the one
on your PC (unless you're using NTFS, or linux or have a Mac). In any
case, you can make as many subfolders as you want. I just mirror all of
my music files between my PC and my recorder 20. I sort by genre/artist
album - you may do it however you prefer.

The firmware does not do this in itself, but if you download the
id3browse program:

you can create an ID3 tag-based system that does just that. Browse by
artist, album, year, genre, etc. Check out

Oooh - limitations. Don't say that in the same sentence with rockbox,
please. =) The hardware is the only limitation. (That'd be a good motto
for rockbox, ya know?)
