no its not posssible ;)

but you could (if you can't handle angstrom) use this firmware (down is the link for optimized second version take this =) )
http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=49962

and this tutorial ;)

Working Market steps:
Start from scratch do a recovery format after backing up your data.
Remove your sdcard.
Format it with minitool partion wizard(free)
1st partition is fat32 and primary. 2nd should be ext3 and also primary.

Do not re-insert it into the archos as yet.

Install the regular 3d firmware.
Install the sde firmware.
Setup dual boot.
Flash the stock firmware files.
Boot into the archos firmware.
Flash the customized firmware.
Re-insert the sdcard.

install a terminal and run the following:


Code:
su
a2sd check
a2sd cachesdreset


(archos will reboot)

Go back into terminal


Code:
su
a2sd reinstall




Reboot your archos
Go back into terminal


Code:
su
a2sd lowmem-optimum




Install market and test.
Install your apps.

(all taken from treath above!)

this is very easy if you follow the tutorial exactly!
