    I have a 30G ipod thats almost full. I have it sync'ed to my MBP so I don't lose any music. But I don't wanna keep it stored on my internal drive, rather an external drive. It takes up too much space.
    Should I just set the ext drive up as a separate bootable drive, and only sync my ipod when this drive is booted/connected?

    I store all of my iTunes content on an external FW drive.

    With a laptop, this may not be the best solution for you, but you can have this drive either attached via FW or through USB to an Airport and you can stream wirelessly.

    Of course, when you are away from said drive you won't have access to your content on the MBP.
