A cool little site i found while I was surfing the web trying to find out if you can install linux on an iPod...

Although installing Linux on your iPod isn't recommended, I have done so and nothing has gone wrong. I even screwed up the installation probly 20 times and all I had to do was restore the Apple OS by using their program.

Anyways, I think it's cool that you can install Linux on an iPod. Just wondering if anyone else has done so...?
l33t h@x0r... sort of...
