I've got a question on the iPod file system:

My iPod is primarily used on my iMac: there is my music libary and stuff, and I will perfom updates for the iPod from this iMac. Yet, I do want to use it, or part of it, as an external hard drive. So I can transfer files from work (windows) to home. How do I set this up?

- can I switch to the FAT32 from my iMac, or does iTunes on windows have to do this?
- will the iMac still be able to perform updates on the iPod after this switch?
- is it possible to "split" the iPod's hard drive into two: 79 GB for music (mac), 1 GB to FAT32 for file transfer?
- forget about all this and just listen to music on my iPod and get a USB-stick ?

Thanks for any help / advise!

I don't think you can partition the iPod. Get a USB flash drive. :/
