i own an iPod and am very happy with it. unfortunately this is the only
reason i have to fire up win to transfer files but you might take a look
at http://giantlaser.com/~jason/ipod.html. i have already had success to
transfer files _from_ my iPod with linux. i haven't had time to try
Antonin's python scripts to copy files onto the disk in connection with
hfsplusutils yet, but i'll give it a try.

couldn't get the hfs+ kernel module to work and found no news on their
homepage, hope a port from darwin's hfs+ support comes soon.

anyway i transfered >300 songs so far in one session and didn't have any
need to change yet.

yours martin
