Archos Jukebox 20 Recorder

I just ordered a Archos Jukebox 20 Gigabyte MP3 player/recorder. The company doesn't provide linux support, just windows, and macs. Anyhow, it connects to a computer through a USB port and acts as an external harddrive, so I think that this should work with linux as well. I haven't even received the device yet, but I was just querying to find out what I might need to do to get it to work under linux. Do I have to find drivers specific to the device, or just drivers that will work for a USB external harddrive? IF anyone has any info on this I'd appreciate it. For reference, I'm running RH7.3 with the 2.4.18 kernel. Thanks.

Try . Oh, BTW, did you use RedHat 7.1/7.2? If you did, how do you compare 7.1/7.2 to 7.3? I am thinking of upgrading, but can't make up my mind. Posting a reply/voting here would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help. I just upgraded from 7.0 to 7.3, and would highly recommend it. I had the hardest time trying to install my ethernet card (Netgear FA-311) on 7.0. I didn't have to do a thing on 7.3. KDE has improved quite a bit since 7.0 too, just to name a few things. I haven't seen 7.1 or 7.2. I was using 7.0 for almost a year and a half, and I was happy, but just decided to upgrade one day, and I'm glad I did.
