this how to is quite usefull, but needs some addes, ipods last generation has a mdcheksum that chek if hav plugeed into other manager than iyunes, when u plug ipod into amarok, music, sync, and unplug, the ipod cannod read anything into device,
to solve that, use the last libgpod library: 0.6.0 that support last generation ipods including touch and tv,
i provided packages for debian testing/etch in this blog:
download the lib, install and enjoy...
