I have a SanDisk sansa - works great, easy connection Fedora10 see's it as 
simply another drive when connected, like a memory stick. I just drag my music 
& video's to the correct directories on the sansa and It works. I do have to 
ensure that the mp3 tags are in place so it knows how to organize/sort the 
songs - I use EasyTag for that.
