Woot!  Go Maximum PC!

Well, depends on the mirrors used for both.

If you watched the syslog, I bet you would have found the MuVo was 
detected by the kernel.  Programs don't just start up randomly when 
Device X gets plugged in (thank God, I don't mind if the device is 
detected for me, but don't start a program just because I plug 
something in...).

I believe ThinkGeek has details about the MuVo (IIRC, they sold it, 
and I badgered them to include a link to how to use it back when I 
was considering getting one).
