Right. Since you use a unix, you can just copy the playlist to your archos
like this (which cuts off the dir automaticly):

 sed 's:/mnt/archos::g' < sourcelist.m3u > /mnt/archos/playlist.m3u

Personally, I always build my playlists with the find command under linux:

 find mp3 -name "*mp3" > fulllist.m3u
