Welcome to ABi

The best set of installation directions I know are here. That's a link to the Automated installation section of the Rockbox V1 manual. Using the Rockbox Utility is the preferred method of installation and doesn't require use of the command line instructions that are giving you problems.

There's specific directions that work if you follow them. There's a link to the Rockbox Utility there. There's also a link to where you need to get the firmware that the automated installer will ask for during installation. Be sure to use the All Regions link not the one for the Firmware Updater.

That's all you really need to get Rockbox installed. If you follow the directions there and it doesn't install I'd go to the Rockbox forums and let them know. There's been a lot of work put into the automated installer and it's worked for me every time I've tried it. If it's not doing the same for you I'm pretty sure the developers would be interested in finding out why it doesn't.

BTW, your APE files won't work very well on a Rockboxed V1 Fuze. Decoding APE requires more than a Fuze can handle properly. As APE is a lossless codec you can re-encode them to FLAC with no loss in quality. FLAC files will decode without the problems of APE.
