- Rockbox is distributed as a compressed archive using the

- handling such archive files. Windows XP has built-in support for
- \fname{.zip} files and presents them to you as directories unless you
- have installed a third party program that handles compressed files. For
- other operating systems this may vary. If the \fname{.zip} file format
- is not recognised on your computer you can find a program to handle them
- at \url{http://www.info-zip.org/} or \url{http://sevenzip.sf.net/}, both of
- which can be downloaded and used free of charge.
-\item[Text editor.] As you will see in the following chapters, Rockbox is
- highly configurable. In addition to saving configurations,
- Rockbox also allows you to create customised configuration files. If you
