My hard disk is getting full so I would like to keep many of my video files only on my ipod and not on my computer. How do I set up my iTunes so that I can keep the files on my iPod, but not on my computer?

You need to change your preferences so all files are synced manually and then delete the files from your computer.

BTW, it's pretty risky doing this - even if you use your iPOD in Disc mode (so you can moved files back and forth), you have the remember that the iPOD is essentially a HDD in a small case and as such is fairly fragile. You'd be far better off investing $150 in a 300 gig external HDD to back up to and any Videos you bought from iTunes, I'd back up to DVD as well.

I agree, an external HD is the way to go. Although they aren't really all that dependable themselves, you might find yourself in a jam someday if you use your iPod as a hard drive.
