I suppose here that you have got a 2.6.X kernel and that your ipod is using the firewire port

1st step: compile your kernel
Choose the followings options for the device drivers
Device Drivers
SCSI device support --->
Cochez si ce n'est déja fait :
<*> SCSI device support
[*] legacy /proc/scsi/ support
-- SCSI support type (disk, tape, CD-ROM)
<*> SCSI disk support

Don't forget to take the SCSI disk support!

Next:
Device Drivers
IEEE 1394 (FireWire) support
<M> IEEE 1394 (FireWire) support
<M> OHCI-1394 support
<M> SBP-2 support (Harddisks etc.)


Compile your kernel......

2nd step: load your modules

Code:

# modprobe ohci1394



Now , look at dmesg, you must have something like this:

Code:

#dmesg | grep 94
 Detected 1594.981 MHz processor.
 ohci1394: $Rev: 1172 $ Ben Collins <bcollins@debian.org>
 ohci1394: fw-host0: OHCI-1394 1.0 (PCI): IRQ=[11]  MMIO=[e0002800-e0002fff]  Max Packet=[2048]
 ieee1394: Host added: ID:BUS[0-00:1023]  GUID[001106000008d58d]


Load sbp2
Code:
 
 # modprobe sbp2


Liinux can detect your ipod:
Code:
 
#dmesg


you see:
Code:

sda: test WP failed, assume Write Enabled
  sda: asking for cache data failed
  sda: assuming drive cache: write through
  sda: sda1 sda2
  Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi2, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
  Attached scsi generic sg1 at scsi2, channel 0, id 0, lun 0,  type 0


There are 2 partitions :

sda1 : 40 Mo with the firmware ;
sda2 : your data partitions and your Music.

3rd step: mount your ipod

Code:

#mkdir /mnt/ipod
#mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /mnt/ipod



4th step: Get a software for your ipod
Code:

#emerge gtkpod


I hope that this tutorial will help you.
Good luck
