Yeah I should have been more specific. I apologize. I will answer your questions. Firstly, I have both a windows and linux box here. The linux box cannot recognize the ipod at all. The windows box can, and I can copy all required files to the ipod, but then when it comes to formatting the mbr or making the ipod bootable, IE: Boot up the windows machine using USB-HDD, it gave me the "Reading boot sector: The parameter is incorrect." error when I tried to format the mbr. All I would like is to use the ipod to boot up my windows machine into SLAX.
Hopefully this cleared some questions up, and thanks for the quick response Saikee!
