Rhapsody bug work-around; get Rhapsody.com on FF 2.0.0.6

I’ve put my 8GB Sandisk Extreme III card (with the Zonbu OS stack) away for safe keeping.

So far, things seem to be going ok. In fact, I’m writing this from the Zonbu box, via Firefox 2.0.0.6 under Ubuntu.

I installed the Ubuntu Feisty 7.04 Desktop, did the recommended package updates via their tool, and then followed these docs on the Zonbu forums to get the audio working
