I have been using a small Lexar Jump Drive that has an MP3 player built 
in. It is only a 128MB capacity player but holds enough songs for a one 
hour run/jogging workout. the Lexar works with Windows 2000/XP without 
any drivers. It works seamlessly in Linux, too. Just plug it in, add or 
delete files, and go!

There may be higher capacity units available now.

I have an iPod but only use it for listening while walking on lunch 
breaks. I found out the hard way that using a hard drive based player 
for anything that causes moderate jostling can cause the drive to fail
