Look for 'Enable Disk Use' in iPod setup. Once it's been partitioned you may be able to clone the installer to it. I cant remember correctly but I'm sure I have tried this myself and it booted fine but it was in the days of firewire on an old 40gig iPod. I would have thought once the iPod setup has created the partition you may be able to access it in Disk Utility and format it as required in the guides. Let us know how you get on...ooh one more thought. If you don't want to save you music data then why not mount the iPod in disc utility and try formatting the whole thing as a HD.
