That won't work as far as I understand. My understanding was, that the
Archos requires the drive to boot from to be FAT32 and that this is not
something Rockbox can work around because Rockbox is not involved in the
very first stage of booting.

Or maybe I misunderstood that part - I don't own any Archos devices.
