Add the warning from the Sansa port page which describes how to spot a v2 model to the beginning of the installation chapter. Many users start with the manual (as is suggested) and don't get a proper warning before starting the installation process.

Rockbox doesn't function on the v2 models. They can be spotted by the line "Supports Audible audio file formats" on the packaging, or "v2" on the back of the player itself. Additionally the Sandisk firmware version number can be checked. The V1 firmware is named 01.xx.xx, while the V2 firmware begins with 03. This version number can be retrieved under Settings->Info.
This task depends upon

The next time you'll need to write an arrow in LaTeX use $\rightarrow$ instead of -> (which won't work as expected)
