A lot of people have been having problems, getting all sorts of errors like:
"unable to modify firmware error 10"
I'm here to end that. This tutorial will install iPod Linux to your iPod without any errors. And the best part is: YOU WON'T LOSE ANY MUSIC OR DATA USING THIS TUTORIAL!!!
Preparing you ipod:
Hold the MENU and CENTER buttons until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, hold the CENTER and PLAY buttons until your iPod goes into DISK MODE.
Directions for step 1:

Directions for step 2:
Go to http://www.ipodlinux.org/ipodlinux_manager and download and unzip the iPod Linux Manager to your desktop. Run iPodLinux Manager.bat and click NEXT to begin installation. Wait for the installation to complete and click FINISH. Your iPod will automatically eject and iPod Linux will be installed.
