    I thought Rock prompted you to change the password when you ran it the first time

    What do you mean?
    1. Install OpenSSH
    2. SSH into your iPod (login as root)
    3. passwd, as Chicken said.

    But SSH is the filesystem, therefore, it must be in a folder, correct?

    NO. SSH is NOT a filesystem. HFS+ is a filesystem. But that's completely irrelevant.
    SSH is a technology that allows you to log into a computer remotely and get a shell/command prompt from it. SFTP is a "subset" of SSH. That's what you use to transfer files.
    Many SFTP programs also let you open a shell/a standard SSH connection. If they don't, and you're on a Mac/Linux, use the Terminal and type in:
    Code:
    ssh root@<iPod's IP address here>

    So I ssh my iPod and I can change it from there?
