    You can also email the PDF to an account your iPod Touch can see.

    I use Files lite. You can store up to 200MB of files in a variety of formats. You can't leap to a numbered page on the free version, but it will open the pdf at the last page read.

    What 840quadra said. If you have an account set up in the Mail app, you can email the PDF to that account and view it on the iPod.

    I just got my 2g ipod touch and found AirSharing does the trick.

    Yeah, AirSharing will let you do it, but unfortunately it's not free ($6.99). It does do some pretty cool stuff, though. Your Touch becomes a network drive and you can put any files on it, and the ones that the OS can interpret (Excel, Word, PDF, PPT, iWork, .mov, etc, etc) are viewable in the app.

    Whoops, forgot it's the one app that I've have paid for. I've found it completely worth it though. Personally, I think it's time to turn on "disk use" but that's another thread...

    Files Lite does the same things, and it's free.

    mobilefiles from quickoffice is also free and is useful if you have a mobileme account....and if you can get it to work as some users, myself included, can't get it to save our account details:(
