First unzip the file then mount the hidden partition, then type: sudo nautilus /media/disk A window will pop up showing the mounted partition now copy the file across. When done close the window and type: sudo sync unmount disk and archos5. Worked for me

it should because nautilus gives you the permissions to copy it over.. when you entered the command that has the word nautilus in it did it bring a window up?

Make sure and do all the file manipulations in the "root" nautilus window that pops open, not from the actual desktop, and it should work just fine.

in ubuntu, i've found that you need full su, to do this
(be sure you are careful, and know what responsibilities you are entering)
by default ubuntu has no root
# sudo passwd root
enter users password, then enter a "secure password" for root, confirm it, write it down
# su
now you will have superuser access with mounting read=write=resize abilities
