Has anyone else tried Floola on the list other than me? It works really well
with my 4G Nano, and seems to be very specifically designed for any and
every iPod device (other than the Touch, naturally).

Actually, no installation is required. You just download the program
executable and extract it into a folder in your home directory, and then can
just call it from the command line something like so: "./floola-linux". You
might have to sudo that command, but I can't remember at the sec. I don't
use it everyday, just when I want to swap out our put new music on the Nano.
