why would someone want linux on an ipod? its made for music, not an os. 
Sorry, but I miss the point, if you can make it read the thing to you cool, 
I got a 30 gb ipod here that would be awesome if we could do that with, but, 
I don't see any other reason for putting linux on it. It would be like 
turning the blt 40 into a server.
