I would imagine that if the Rockbox software contained the codec for
OGG, then it would play it regardless of what the original Ipod did. I
could be way wrong.

Correct me if I am wrong here, but if the player does not support ogg
then the you are out of luck. For example, the Ipod does not support
ogg playback so just because you have Rockbox installed you still won't
get ogg playback. But, if you have an Iriver, that does support ogg,
then Rockbox will playback ogg files. I think this is correct, but if I
am wrong please someone correct me.

        As for the first question, rockbox currently supports many
codecs, including ogg, but not Audible.
        I hear that you have to convert the audible file to an MP3 or
other rockbox supported file before putting it on your device.
        And for the second question, daily builds are fine to install,
but it isn't neccessary to install them on a per day basis.
        If you hear about some new feature that you would like then by
all means install the new rockbox, but like I said, it isn't neccessary
for rockbox to function.

                Two generic questions please.
                Does Rockbox play ogg, Audible, etc? or just mp3?
                Also, should I always install the daily builds or should
I wait until
                the list mentions a fix before doing so?
