Thank you everyone for your help and input I finally got gtkpod up and running. I had to remove an older version of the program so I could install all of the newer programs that run with the updated version of gtkpod. Once that was accomplished everything loaded great and the program seems to be working as advertised. Now all I have to do is figure out how the program works with my daughter's IPod and how to download stuff off the ITunes web site, thank again for your help, TC.
P.S. This stuff is getting a little easier to work with and manipulate although I am not boasting because I know I have a long way to go before I am comfortable with Linux.
