I think the first thing you should do, is to get familiar with the tools: checkout current SVN, compile zenutils and try extracting Creative's firmware (have you seen rockbox.org/wiki/CreativeZVM ?).
As some work has been done already on the ZVM, which applies to the whole Zen line, there isn't much work left looking for an entry point to boot your own code. However, reverse engineering the Creative firmware in order to figure out how to get the hardware working isn't an easy task.
I believe though that the hardest part will be reverse engineering the FTL (Flash Translation Layer).
I hope you don't mind me CC'ing the Rockbox development list, as I don't think this info should be only privately accessible.
