Apparently having to answer my own question, I learned by experimenting
that the following have to be updated:

\.rockbox\rocks\firmware_flash.rock
\.rockbox\viewers\rockbox_flash.rock
\ajbrec.ajz
\.rockbox\rombox.ucl or
\.rockbox\rockbox.ucl

The last three can actually be anywhere.

0 Save your current setup to a config file
1 Copy these files to their appropriate places.
2 ROLO into the new ajbrec.ajz
3 run rombox or rockbox.ucl, depending on which type you're using.
4 Optionally, delete the above files, as they are no longer needed.
5 play the config file to return to the previous machine state.
6 save the new machine state to a config file to preserve the settings
that might have been added.

I break up the config into two parts, basic setup and listening
parameters.

Basic setup is things that won't normally change.

I have three listening parameter files:

audio books
Music
random music.

These contain parameters that change. For audio books, especially those
ripped from tape, I want max treble, almost no bass and no base boost. I
use much more flat settings for music.

I'm probably going to break "music" up into two files, rock music and
everything else.
