Re: Which iPod?

I guess I could ask it here.

I never had an iPod nor any MP3 player (though I do have iTunes) because I
have quite a lot of music and I'd need a player that could hold most to all
of it (were talking just under 100 official albums and over 200 unofficial
albums). Then I heard about the 80 GB iPod. This would hold most of my
music, I think. I should know which generation it is (whatever is the
newest for video, I would think), but I don't. My question?

Will RockBox work on the the 80 GB iPod? Or is that the 5.5 iPod that
RockBox is working on the software for?

Also (and I know this is a question unrelated to RockBox, but I need to
know), when you put any CD onto iTunes or one of those programs, it reads it
track-by-track, which kinda sucks for a live album, because having skips
between two songs on a live album kills the flow. How do you avoid this so
when you play back the live album on iTunes or your iPod, it is continuous
play without skips or pauses between tracks?
