I borrowed my Archos multimedia jukebox to an FBSD commiter and he
did a quick test on an Fbsd 5.1-BETA. 
It didn't work even though usbd and umass.ko loads and works perfectly
fine, but he suspects it's a problem with the FAT32 drivers for Freebsd.
(the debugging and errorcodes hinted at such.)
maybe when 5.2 is released with a new set of fat32 drivers it might

OT, regarding the rocbox project, are there any plans for extending
support to the Archos multimedia Jukebox? Probably not, but are there
any else working on such an project?

Anyway, here's an warning to Derek, Don't confuse the Archos Multimedia
jukebox with the other archos jukebox models, they are quite different
on the inside.
