Heh... actually my iPod is FAT32 because I had it with Windows before I
had a Mac.

yeah, read only is a good idea.
I decided that rather than messing with HFS+ in FreeBSD (when I'll
likely never use it again), I would just enable FTP on FreeBSD and
upload the files. It'll take a little longer to do the copy, but I can
do it right now and work on other things while it is running, rather
than having to learn how to enable HFS+ (which would be good to know,
but I've got a lot of other things pressing at the moment, so saving a
bit of time today is good).
I guess the next question is figuring out what filesystem to use on the
drive once all the data I want/need is off of it.
