+Build your own archos.mod.
+
+1. Check out 'firmware' and 'apps' from CVS (or possibly form a downloaded
+ archive). You probably want to check out 'tools' too (to get the configure
+ script if nothing else) and possibly the 'uisimulator' too (for trying out
+ things on host before making target tests).
+
+2. Create your own build directory. This is where all generated files will be
+ put.
+
+3. In your build directory, run the 'tools/configure' script and enter what
+ target you want to build for and if you want a debug version or not. It'll
+ prompt you. The debug version is for making a gdb version out of it. It is
+ only useful if you run gdb towards your target Archos.
+
+4. *ploink*. Now you have got a Makefile generated for you. Run 'make' and
+ soon the necessary pieces from the firmware and the apps directories have
+ been compiled and linked.
+
+5. Copy the archos.mod file to your archos, reboot it and *smile*.
+
+Whenever the tools/configure script gets updated, you can make your makefile
+updated too by running 'tools/configure update'
+
+If you want to build for more than one target, just create a new build
+directory and create a setup for another target combination in there.
