The Rockbox installer asks for this using the word mountpoint. Before you connect the player to install Rockbox, the usb mode on the player has to be set to MSC. The only problem is that if you put Rockbox on a player you might permanently disable the player from playing protected files.
Also recommended: scan
the Rockbox manual for the Clip player you have (also available at the Rockbox site). There is so much useful information there and there are so many capabilities with Rockbox, you really don't want to miss them!
