/dev/archos points to the USB hard drive in the Archos. I have set it up in
udev to create these devices since I have multiple USB storage gadgets (CF
reader, SD reader, Archos). It does point to the right device, since I have
been copyuing podcasts to /dev/archos1 (similar to /dev/sda pointing to the
entire hard drive and /dev/sda1 pointing to the first partition on that
