Ubuntu only supports arm7 and x86. I very much doubt the iPod runs

I think what Dave trying to say is not running ubuntu INSIDE the iPod,
but booting his PC (or any PC actually) from his iPod. In this case the
iPod acts like an USB stick or a hard disk and it is surely possible.
I myself for example, once brought with me a USB stick running a distro
named Slax. Really convenient :-)
Interestingly it looks like it's actually possible, at least with older
The question is why you'd bother with any of this (one of the suggested

As for why, well, because I can.
The iPod was just sitting in my
drawer doing nothing. Battery doesn't last very long anymore...
