I gave it a quick try last night, it looks very slick, however it
*didn't* recognise the Creative Zen. Note that the Creative Zen (as I
understand it) isn't a 'Nomad' device, it's just a straightforward MP3
When plugged in all I see in dmesg is:-
usb 7-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9
usb 7-6: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
It looks as if I'll have to do a bit of configuration in amarok to get
it to see the Zen.
