I have a Sansa too.  E200 class. I love it to death and its firmware
is opensource too. (rockbox.org)

Sadly, I usually move music to it when under Windows because I'm usually
booted winblows for the games.  (Damn you Plants vs Zombies!!!)  I can't
offer you advice on the computer end.

If you do go for a Rockboxed sansa, pay very close attention to the model.
There are some sansa's that the version 1 can be Rockboxed but the version 2
hardware can't be.

iPods have taken over the dock/car accessory market.  You can plug into the
car via the headphone jack or use the 12volt FM transmitter with Sansa dock
but that's about it for accessories.
