Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Well first of all, there is no point in posting this here. This thread is unrelated to your question.
Ipod Nano is supported by most linux audio players:
Amarok, Exaile, Banshee, Rhythmbox.
If all else fails, use gtkpod.
It would be useful if you added the distribution you are using to your profile.
When you ask a question explain what you already tried and what didn't work.
Do not pump old threads. If you have a question, it's usually better to start your own thread. - before you do that, use google and/or the search function of this forum.
Distribution: Xubuntu 9.10, Gentoo 2.6.27 (AMD64), Darwin 9.0.0 (arm)
A brief serch of the interweb found me this:
"Locally installed versions of PCLinuxOS utilize the Advanced Packaging Tool (or APT), a package management system (originally from the Debian distribution), together with Synaptic, a GUI frontend to APT."
Can you find "Synaptic" in your menu somewhere? it should let you install all sorts of software.
If you use the standard kde, synaptic is one of the shortcuts on the bottom left.
Amarok is pre-installed. You could just see if it works with that:
Or search for it in the menu. Once you connect your ipod, it should show up, if it doesn't, check the preferences. Amarok might be more practical, because it lets you just drag your playlists over. gtkpod does not double as an audio player, it's just for transfer.
