Before you follow the rest of the Lemmings off iPod mountain, check out: http://www.neurosaudio.com/ I have one of the originals, but I am still really pleased with it. Its been to Iraq and back and has a lot of frequent flyer miles. I got it because I use vorbis to encode my audio and at the time, this was the only device that supported ogg containers. Good luck.
