FS#8896 - Sansa e200 manual confusing, easy fix

I don’t know how to report bugs very well, nor is this a bug, so please forgive me.

In the Sansa e200 manual it says:

“Bootloader installation from Linux

1. Download sansapatcher from http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/sandisk-sansa/
   sansapatcher/linux32x86/sansapatcher (32-bit x86 binary) or http://download.rockbox.
   org/bootloader/sandisk-sansa/sansapatcher/linux64amd64/sansapatcher (64-bit amd64
   binary)"

Sorry for the poor formatting. Anyways, I’m not completely computer illiterate, but I have no idea whether to use 32-bit or 64-bit or what that even means. It is also not explained anywhere. It would be nice to add a brief explanation to help beginners through this.

As a beginner, you should use our nice graphical installer Rockbox Utility, which gets mentioned in the manual as well (in front of the manual installation instructions). Those instructions are for manual installation, and IMO it’s not needed to have them understandable for all beginners. If you happen to get directed to those in our support channels you’ll usually get guided along enough.

Besides, your computer being 32 or 64 bits is nothing you can judge from simply looking at the “box” or similar.
