edit your host file (google it). I'm not sure if itunes connects to apple.com tho, does anyone know the web address we should block? I blocked apple.com just in case.

Do you have a firewall? If so set up a rule in your firewall to prompt you when iTunes attempts to connect to the Internet...

say i have an ipod with 1.1.1 on it, then i go to the store to have it replaced, then when i go to my computer itunes prompts me for a software update download can i choose not to download it, but to install 1.1.1?

iTunes>Preferences> Then turn off "Check for updates automatically". I don't know why you all are doing this the hard way.
