when the archos in-chip firmware starts, *IT* looks on the disk for a file
called ajbrec.ajz (or whatever) so ...the .ajz file MUST live in the root

The ajz file *IS* the rockbox firmware

Once rockbox is running, it knows that all it's files live in the /.rockbox
directory (cos filling your root up is ugly and annoying to most techies)

So... AJZ in root; everything else in /.rockbox :)
