    Is it possible to make to partitions on an iPod, and use one as a regular iPod and the other for instance as a Linux partition?

    I speak out of 98% ignorance on the issue...
    but I seriously doubt it.

    That would involve 'teaching' the firmware to regognize (and destinguish between) the two partitions. I personally have tried this (not with the default and linux, mind you) and itunes regognizes an ipod, and osx notes two disks. I don't reemember actually trying the ipod, but I assume that It would regognize the first partition.

    I'm pretty sure this is what happened, but it could be that itunes regognized two ipods , rather than one. I doubt this though. I'm relatively sure that itunes can only address one at a time, for the two theoretical 'devices and disks' are connected through one device and are not expected to be.

    I'm guessing we are talking about IPL, and not a Linux-formatted ipod?
