video ipod as boot disk
it said on wikipedia that an ipod can ...
An iPod formatted as HFS Plus is able to serve as a boot disk for a Mac computer, allowing one to have a portable operating system installed. The older iPods with FireWire ports could additionally function in FireWire Disk Mode. With the advent of the Windows-compatible iPod, the iPod's default file system switched from HFS Plus to FAT32, although it can be reformatted to either filesystem (excluding the iPod shuffle which is strictly FAT32).
If i get a 5.5 (hopefully 6g) video ipod can i use it as a bootdisk and also an ipod if i format it to hfs plus?
I have asked this prior i think, however, i didn't get a straight answer, and have asked many who are quite unsure. anybody with actual experiences know?

You can't use it as both an iPod and a boot disk. You can use it as one or the other, but only if you have an Intel Mac. Most PPC Macs will not boot from USB.
Some things are better mad...
