You can use mediamonkey for sure. You do not NEED itunes for an ipod. I never, never used it at all on any of my ipods. I just used some freeware software to add and remove musics.

I've had many iPods over time, and absolutely loved em, and yes there are other programs other than iTunes that can sync with your iPod, and I've tried em, however, although I'm not a fan of iTunes, I ended up using it just for that since it's pretty much the best for syncing with your iPod, plus I'm pretty sure you need it to get any firmware updates, etc. etc.
It's not like it's any trouble to just use it for syncing. If you gotta use an alternative to your preferred media player, then I don't see the problem with just using iTunes instead.
