Well, you kinda answered the question there. iTunes is for Windows and 
Mac. You can try running it via Wine, but I'm guessing the USB stuff 
wont work, but the app store might.

Is there a way to export the iphones flash disk to show up as a mass 
storage device? I don't have one here, so I can't say for sure. My droid 
does that and it works fine in BSD :)
