Hey folks.. I'm thinking of buying an mp3 player. I know Ipod is the most popular, but I'm not a big Apple fan, and I was wanted to know what you would suggest. I want to spend a maximum of of $175, get at least 5gb of storage capacity, and, of course, I want to be able to work with it on my Gentoo box.

Which one would you all suggest?

As far as I know, most mp3 players force you to use their software (ie iTunes). I have an iRiver (flash based, so not as much space as you are looking for), and I had to flash it with non-standard firmware that iRiver puts out, but now I can address it like a hard drive, and ya, I'm happy. So just a thought when you are looking at players.
