    I've installed Linux on my 1st gen Nano, I got it to play music, photos and it also allows you to change more settings on your iPod. You can also install games on to it. I had to install it via my brothers PC it was pretty easy to do but i found it pretty much useless since i can't even fit all my music on 4GB not by along shot. With Linux installed you can still boot in the normal iPod software using a combination. It's great for a bit of fun (why I did it) but the storage is too limited to really allow you to take full advantage of it. I think you can also install Linux on video iPods too that would be pretty good. I installed it a long time ago I'm sure that there is a much more updated version now.

    Check this Wiki out, I remember all the info was in a readme file. I installed it painlessly so it's an easy task.
