Forgive the typo, it is actually /DEVKIT/RockBox.pif (obviously where
/DEVKIT/ is your chosen install directory)

Also, the .pif is generated by SETUP.BAT, because the link has to be
absolute, and we do not know where the devkit is installed until after it
is unzipped.

...Still wondering whether to put another wrapper around the .exe and make
it automatically run SETUP on install ...hmmm

Yes, sorry, I changed the user name at the last minute because cvs was
happy to create /DEVKIT/rockbox/rockbox ...I did not like two directories
with the same name in the path, so I changed the user to guest ...cos it
was the best I could come up with at the time.

So... Point 4 SHOULD read:

          4. Save the tarball to /DEVKIT/home/guest/
