yeah, that's precisely it, but I'm putting a user-friendly front end on it
for a friend who is less than a power-users. It's been a drag for him, he
doesn't know a whole lot about computers and certainly nothing about Unix
so he felt (at first) like the Archos is basically a rip-off for Mac
users... he thinks you have to have high-level skills or a mac tech at your
disposal to get the thing to work right with a Mac (which is basically
true.) I showed him it's possible to format the Archos, clean those
resource files, etc. with a Mac, but he still doesn't want to touch
Terminal (and I wouldn't want him to) hence a GUI interface for it.


The great thing is, over the internet, nobody knows I'm a dog.
