Got my first mac about a month ago and simply love the mac experience. I also got a 80GB ipod and wanted to transfer all my audiobooks from my macbook pro (mp3 files) into the "Audiobooks" section of the ipod. When I sync the ipod to itunes it automatically puts all the audiobooks into the music library and not Audiobooks. Is there a setting that i need to change so that the ipod recongnizes the audiobooks for what they are and not music. I changed the genre info for all the audiobooks to "Audiobooks" but it didnt do the trick. Any suggestions?

There are other things that need to be done for it to be recognized as an audiobook. You can try this script for itunes.

Here's a couple of links - one of them is a walk thru using Doug's Apple scripts.
