Executive summary: you can't. Unlike many phones, the iPhone doesn't
behave as a simple disk drive. There's no way to mount it, the
connection protocol is secret, and Apple have no interest in supporting
Linux. You could use a VM running Windows of course, but it needs to be
one that supports USB devices (see recent thread on this list).

Alternatively, you could jailbreak the phone and copy files using scp. I
don't know if the phone will then recognize them as something it can
play, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Tethering can be done on jailbroken phones or on some very limited set
of carriers blessed by Apple.

I have no idea what that means.
