    Since the iPod Touch 2G can be booted with an untethered jailbreak now, would it be possible to have linux on it?

    I would assume yes, however I would wait for a more 'assured' answer.
    Out of curiosity why would you want this? There are no drivers yet...

    it would be possible but not reasonable as of now, being untested and all.

    EDIT: and iPod linux is really only for testing/developers. (as there are no drivers as of yet)
