    All you need is iTunes 2 working, and a FireWire port.

    Download iTunes 2 at http://www.apple.com/itunes/

    No internet connection necessary, but it's recommended so you can get the CDDB titles for your CDs that you rip. iTunes 2 works in OS 9 too, so you could just use that.

    from the iPod's tech specs:

    Requirements
    Apple computer with built-in FireWire port
    Mac OS 9.2 (or later) or Mac OS X v10.1 (or later)
    iTunes 2 software (included)

    You get the iPod, headphones, a 6-6pin FireWire cable, and the little power adapter thingie. It also comes with iTunes 2.0.4 so you don't have to download it, that is, if you don't have it already.

    And Jake, get the new Mac man! I say dump the monitor, and save that money for a car, so you don't feel too guilty :) Of course, then don't buy the car and get the Cinema HD. I was messing around with a Dual gigger at CompUSA hooked up to a Cinema HD display. All i can say is DAMN!! I wanted one so bad, but was spending my money on iPod.

    Yes, do that. But the way it's looking you'll be waiting a year at least, but by then Apple might be out of business =/
