Real Player, which many people still use, has its MP3 files put under /Audio
in the SD Card. I am not too sure about the equivalent location in physical
RAM, but I imagine there is no directory structure there (i.e. it's flat).
Have a tool like FileZ in reach, just in case you want to manage collections
at ease. 

For the record, the latest version of pilot-link supports file transfers to
SD cards



  pilot-xfer -p /dev/pilot -i *.mp3 -D /Audio

would do the trick.

Hope it helps,
