Hi Allen

Confirmed: Video 30Gb very useable, install is flawless (Linux UBUNTU 6.06
laptop with USB2, nautilus file manager with Show Hidden Files enabled + not
more than 3 command-line jobs in the terminal).

I actually _never_ even used the original mac firmware, I installed rockbox
right after buying the device. true drag'N'drop files, full control over file
organisation + full control over LOOKS!

Only issue as of now is short in memory when diplaying heavy pictures while
music playback, otherwise, a very rewarding experience in the sometimes
frustrating OpenSource community.

Cheers

Jean-Philippe Geek, maybe, but non-hacker, dumb user.
