I'm not sure why you say that with rhythmbox the ipod is associated
with a single computer ? How is rhythmbox different from amarok in
this area ?

Fwiw, ogg (vorbis) is a lossy format, you want flac if you want some
lossless storage

Rhythmbox already does the transparent conversion. Maybe you don't
have a gnome media profile set up to encode to mp3 ? The easiest might
be to setup sound-juicer so that it can rip to mp3, then rhythmbox
will be able to use that configuration to transcode from ogg to mp3.

Hope that helps,
