RE: Iriver rockbox files in a .rockbox folder?

I have just downloaded the exact file you mention, and when I open it in
WinZip (Classic not Wizard mode) I can see the following column names:
Name / Type / Modified / Size / Ratio / Packed / Path

The path column contains 128 entries the start with .rockbox\ etc. only the
file rockbox.iriver does not have an entry in this column..

Select EXTRACT from the toolbar and ensure that the "All files/folder in
archive" radio button is selected and that the "Use folder names" option
button is checked. Set the "Extract to:" path to the drive letter of your
iriver (i.e. E:\) and click the Extract button...

|Subject: Iriver rockbox files in a .rockbox folder?
|First of all, a big thanks to you folks working on this. Been
|watching it for a while and have decided to install at this point.
|When I downloaded the other day, I
|wasn't able to follow the quickstart page fully. I put in the
|bootloader just fine, and it loads the iriver firmware on
|bootup, which is cool. Then i try and put in rockbox, and
|have trouble with this portion:
|"You will need to unpack all of the files in the archive onto
|your music player's hard disk. If this has been done
|correctly, you will have a file called archos.mod (for the
|Archos player), ajbrec.ajz (for all other Archos
|models) or rockbox.iriver (for iRivers) in the main folder of
|your drive, and also a folder called .rockbox, which contains
|a number of system files used by the Rockbox software."
|Basically, the zip file doens't have a folder, just has 129
|files, including rockbox.iriver
|Where is the folder .rockbox that I have to dump into my root
|directory of the player?
|Thanks for the help,
