In reality, the Gigabeat is for my co-worker's husband, but if that port is
really in
excellent standing, then it's settled. I'll tell her about it and get it
installed when

Besides, seeing that the stock Gigabeat firmware is even more flimsy than
the
stock iPod firmware outdoes every other excuse to Rockbox it.
