Considering that Microsoft banned iPods from the Redmond campus, I'm
surprised they still work with Windows at all...

Seriously, I found the same package combo working for a number of
Fedora/iPod using friends. I have other USB devices that seem to "Just
Work" (TM) as well, including a SD card reader.

The only one that seems to have problems with consistency is my Palm -
even when running the latest FC5T2/Rawhide bits. If we can get this one
fixed, I would be a really happy guy...!

Cheers,

Chris
