I don't think you can really run linux on an ipod... there wouldn't be any need to, really. And i don't understand the 2nd part of that question.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It works on my machine...

I *really* doubt you could run the whole Suse Linux OS on the iPod. However a quick Google search pulled up this website: www.ipodlinux.org

(You can run Linux on Ipod Nano for sure.
I for myself have two nanos and wanted to play videos on them. So i read some texts about it. But I'm not sure weather it was Suses Linux.)

Oh Chaos means that he INSTALLED it on the Ipod and started it from the PC. ^^ My friend hast DSL (damnsmalllinux) on his 2g USB Stick. :)

yes, yes you can. Make sure your BIOS allows usb or ext hd to boot first.

I have done it. Make sure your ipod is "write disk enabled"

nothing hard
