Exclamation 1 thing left before I rid Windows

I LOVE LINUX, this whole process was easier than I thought it would be, easier than installing Windows.

I want to completly rid my PC of the Virus called "Microsoft Windows" the only thing holding me back is that I have a RIO600 mp3 portable, and I can't seem to find any software for it for Linux. I have found the RIO500 software<which came with my Mandrake 8.1> does anyone out there know if there is something available for the RIO600?
