Ipod Classic 80GB 6TH Generation A1238 Linux


Which version of linux is made for these Ipod's or if there is more then one, which version do you recommend. I want format my Ipod into 3 partitions:
1st is FAT32 20GB for my Ipod stuff.
2nd is 30GB of NTFS for storage stuff.
3rd is for linux and whichever filesystem it installs.

-Thanks for any help

try using this tutorial for installing tinycore to usb
filesystem must be ext2 or ext3 with grub OR fat322 using syslinux
