    I've been browsing the forums and I've noticed a lot of cool apps which can be downloaded via pc. I have absolutely no experience with ssh and I have a few questions:

    1) what should I install in order to access my iPod's file system from my pc?

    2) can messing up code damage my iPod?

    3) what cool things can you do with ssh?

    Thanks for helping a noob - Veggienewt

    1) Install WinSCP on your PC and install SSH on your iPod (via Installer)
    2) The files you edit can potential make some applications unusable, although that is if you)
    3) SSH just helps you move files from your PC to your iPod wirelessly (need a wifi access point). The "cool" things you can do is move files and edit permission numbers (helps fix non-working programs).

    Install Services and turn SSH on. Then install BossPreffs and then turn on ssh
