[ubuntu-uk] First generation iTouch in 9.04?

I myself have a second gen iPod touch, and I believe that you can't do  
much natively in ubuntu without delving deep into ssh (which isn't  
ideal for anyone) What I've had to do is set up a virtual machine with  
windows in it, and sync my iPod touch through iTunes in windows.

You can find out more about virtualisation on the ubuntu wiki, but in  
my experience the process isn't too complicated and works fine for me.
