+<h2>What is Flashing</h2>
+<p> Flashing in the sense used here and elsewhere in regard to Rockbox, means
+reprogramming the flash memory of the Archos unit. Flash memory (sometimes
+called "flash RAM") is a type of constantly-powered nonvolatile memory that
+can be erased and reprogrammed. It is a variation of electrically erasable
+programmable read-only memory (EEPROM).
+ When you bought Your Archos, it came with the Archos firmware flashed. Now,
+you can replace the built-in software with Rockbox.
