I don't know if that will help you at all, but with Kubuntu/Ubuntu you can use the Synaptic package manager, add the universal packages, which should help.
Check this out on the Ubuntu forum, I guess some people have had luck with Amarok and Kubuntu, it seems you just have to add /mnt/ipod it will transfer the songs.
Hope that helps!
2. Running a Windows port of an Apple program on Linux???
