    The best way to service more than one iPod on a single computer is to set up multiple user accounts. Do this within the OS. Each user logs in (with a password, if you want) as they wish to use the computer. That way, every iPod has its own Library within iTunes, totally separate from all the others. The music, on the other hand, can be still shared by users across the accounts, so you don't need to re-rip any music.

    However, you can also do it on a single user account by turning off automatic syncing within iTunes. This way though, each iPod has to be synced manually - ie, dragging music on and off.

    Candidate for addition to the FAQ list?

    Saw this one asked a couple of days ago too and seems a useful tip.
