Tossing around an idea for my next project...
I have a 30GB iPod 5th generation.
I was wondering if it's possible to get Ubuntu to boot from it, and
still have iTunes use it as normal (with reduced capacity, of course)

Ubuntu only supports arm7 and x86. I very much doubt the iPod runs
either of those I'm afraid. Even that aside, it's rather peculiar
hardware. Rockbox might be a better place to start.

Actually, what I meant (and not stated clearly) is to use the iPod as an external HDD for an Intel computer to boot from.
So far, no dice. I installed using Startup disk creator...
