    Handbrake can convert DVD's to play on an iPod. I'm not sure if it can convert AVI files.

    podencoder is another option that can use eithe DVD's or individual files as a source.

    Hopefully one of those two can help.

    If you use KDE I'd try the iPod KIO Slave. Then you can just drag and drop in a file manager. You could also trry YamiPod or gtkpod.

    You could try http://thinliquidfilm.org which is specifically designed to convert and transfer videos to your ipod.

    I just heard about that one for the first time yesterday. I haven't tried it, but it looks promising.
