Sorry my 1st email hasn't reached the list yet, but you
answered my question.

I pulled this from my previous post:
<snipped from fstab>
### IPOD ###
#/dev/sda3 /mnt/ipod hfsplus noauto,user,rw 0 0
/dev/sda2 /mnt/ipod vfat noauto,user,rw 0 0

Do you have an entry like that in your fstab?
The "user" option is what allows a user to mount the
partition. (Usuaaly the "mount" command balks unless its
run by root.)
Also, I have the "rw" option in mine, because I don't
know what the default is, so it doesn't hurt to make
it explicit.

Before you even start gtkpod you need to be able to go
to the ipod partition (/mnt/ipod for me) and do
a "touch test ; rm test".

That way you know you have write perms.
