Question ipod-convenience package install error


I have am running a AMD Sempron 1.8GHz 80 GB SATA HDD with a dual boot setup.
/sda1 --- Windows XP Pro
/sda2 --- Ubuntu

I am trying to connect my ipod touch to my system to read directly from it.

I have followed the how to at:

When I ran
apt-get install ipod-convenience

I had the wrong IP adress and mount point that I wanted when it installed the first time, it asked me in a graphical interface.

I then uninstalled ipod-convenience and reinstalled it.

I tried to modify the /etc/default/ipod-convenience file

I removed that directory manually by running
rm etc/default/ipod-convenience

Now I cannot backtrack and reinstall it with the graphical interface before asking me what IP and mount point.

when I run
apt-get install ipod-convenience I get:

After this operation, 0B of additional disk space will be used.
Setting up ipod-convenience (0.9-0ubuntu1) ...
sed: can't read /etc/default/ipod-convenience: No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing ipod-convenience (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I understand its complaining that the
doesnt exist, but how do I get it back.

Any input would be greatly appreciated

its simple reinstall using
sudo apt-get install ipod-convenience
download the tat.gz file
unrar it and paste the contents in the path you want it to be in
i guess its /usr/share
