i dont know about vmware player but in virtualbox theres guest additions that you can install that map a drive from the host to the virtual machine I've used it on Slackware and (K)Ubuntu and never had any compatibality issues with it. you may try installing itunes with wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator).

You can share a folder on one device and access it on the other. Either in XP and access it through an NFS map on linux, or set up Samba on the linux side and get to it the other direction.

Do you need the syncing ability or the iTunes store too? Quick google search reveals many ways to sync Apple devices with Linux.

Just syncing, I can iTunes stuff from my phone

I have looked into those programs, but from what I've heard, they don't work all that well, plus I need the ability to backup and restore my phone of needed, along with jailbreaking

My credo
Work hard and play harder
iTunes and wine does not work. Trust me I have tried. There are a couple media players hosted on Linux that interface with Apple products. For the life of me I cannot remember what the are. Go into the software centre and search for ipod software.

ive used Amrok to put music on my olde 2gig ipod but it wouldnt work for backing up and restoring an ipod like itunes does, it also wont jailbreak it, and getting it to work with a ipod touch is a fairly big hassle
