No, you'll have to make a decision which app you want to 'maintain' your 
music library. It goes without saying iTunes gets the hump if you use 
anything else to organise the playlists and is incompatible with Linux.

There is a project called aTunes http://www.atunes.org/ however I've 
never used it and have no idea if its compatible with the iTunes store 
(I doubt it). I have no shame whatsoever and maintain a Windows 7 box at 
home which does all my iTunes stuff. As I said back in your first post 
I'm not a big fan of managing a music collection from a netbook anyway, 
true its just data but even so it fills me with uneasiness. Obviously if 
this is their only PC then you have no choice, I would put the iTunes 
issue to one side and sort the Netbook OS first use the 'Live USB' see 
if they like it then you can worry about their 'Lady Ga ga' music.
