I have an iTouch.  I have not been successful synching it with Linux, though 
that is where my music resides.  I am lucky in that at work I have a windows 
computer with iTunes that I use, with my LInux music directory shared and 
aliased to a windows drive letter.

I am wondering if I can share this "virtual file system" so that *it* is 
accessible on the windows box as well.
