hacking Doom to run on an iPod

The Register writes about a
Hard-working iPod Linux developer 'Kyle' has reworked Doom so that it will play on the device, albeit at an excruciatingly slow 3-4fps frame rate. There's information about the port on the iPod Linux website.
The software also requires software to run Linux on the Apple product called Podzilla be installed, and uses the player's scroll wheel to control the action.
It's a complex task to load Doom onto an iPod, requiring that users install both Podzilla and that they are confident enough to compile the software on the music player. If that's you, there's some help available on the project's forums.

hmm. this sounds cool. i gots to try this out.
