Well for Rockbox it should not be a problem since it scans for a primary
vfat partition (in fact the only constraint is that your main vfat partition
remains a primary partition). So your small ext2 partition can be set as
another primary partition or embedded in an extended partition. If you plan
to have more than one vfat partition, Rockbox will only use the first one it
encounters so be careful about the order of your vfat partitions. It should
not be a problem for Archos firmware too.
