    Is it possible to remove a song from my iPod, but have it remain in the Library? I figured that unchecking the checkboxes would do that, but no such luck. As far as I can tell, I have to delete the file from iTunes to remove it from my iPod during the next synch.

    Please tell me I'm missing something.

    Yes you can, just right click(control click) on the song on your ipod and remove it. The song wont be touched on your itunes list but will be removed from your ipod.

    Did you also tell iTunes just to sync checked songs?

    If that doesn't help. Make a playlist with all songs except the one you want to avoid and tell iTunes to sync that playlist and not the whole library.

    Doesn't that only work if you manually manage your iPod...?

    Forgot to mention that sorry dude. I did not know if you did or didnt manage it but make sure manually manage your songs in the ipod options.
