1-3 G is not the same as 1-3 GB. G=Generation GB=Gigabytes

A few questions: Does this thing work with anything other than the really old iPods? Like the iPod nano for example? It IS a 1-3 gig iPod after all (providing that you get the 2 gig one of course) Also, does it actually install Linux for you (like the real Linux and not a version of Linux designed for the iPod) or do you need to have the OS first and that this just allows you to install it. Kind of like installing it on a modded xbox if any of you know about that. An furthermore, can you do the same thing on the iPod (only restrained by the limited amount of space) as any other computer with this OS? Perhaps maybe watch videos?? That idea just seems too good to be true, but at the same time very posible. But if it didnt do things like that, then what would it do that the iPod already couldnt without it?

What exactly is the problem you are encountering? Are you trying to install it on an iPod other than 1-3G? This will not work because these iPods are not supported. If you have a 1-3g iPod, are actually having problems with the installer, please email me and I will be happy to help. Cheers

Wicked! Love it.. Can't wait for more updates.. Shows that Apple really have not run with this product as much as they could.... Had a scare when I tried to eject the iPod from the installer after install and it went blank.. (Nice touch leaving instruction on screen about switching OS though - Real good for Linux people with short term memory problems! ;-) ) Anyway, then all the scrolling text as Linux booted freaked me out! But all went well!! Perhaps a few notes about that in the docs might be good!

So I've got its installed and it seems pretty cool... but what does it do really? Does it do anything more then let you play a few new games? Can I install other linux programs onto it? A little advise as to what I should do with it would be great!

my only complaint is the lack of functionality with modern models. I think it's a great idea. Sure, the interface doesn't look as nice as the default apple os, but in time, who's to say what will spring from the efforts of these programmers.
