This is great and I think was really needed. It’s too bad I didn’t think of it :)

Please excuse my ignorance, but what is the whole iPod + Linux thing all about? I’m relativley new to the iPod but I’ve been using computers since I could hold a mouse. I don’t know much about Linux. Although I wish it wasn’t so, I’ve always had to work with the mainstream Windows software, so could someone throw me a bone here? Please? lol

Werewolf:
iPod Linux is another OS for the iPod. After you install it, you reset the iPod (Menu + center button) and press and hold the ‘rewind’ button. This in effect will boot iPod Linux. With iPod Linux, you can install Doom, Mario, and lots of Nintendo games…...

Hi, my Ipod won’t shut off!

I click and hold the play/pause button but nothing.  I know it’s not on ‘hold’ and I know the button functions, because I can Play, and Pause… but when I press and hold it, nothing happens.

How do I shut it off?
