Just to add my 2 cents...
I like my iRiver h140 it's running its default firmware and "Rock Box"
open source OS for media players!
Here is a list of the devices it currently supports
I really like the iRiver it's a 40Gb player but I have it partitioned
25Gb /music (fat32)
and 15Gb /home directory I boot of a USB stick as you cant boot from
the iRiver h140
(other models might differ) then mount /home and the media partition.
