    I think this will work for ya.. Try it and let me know for sure...


    In iTunes, select Window->Equalizer (EQ window pops up)

    - Twiddle the slider bars to your heart's content (in EQ pop-up window)
    The Menu Bar will now say "Manual"

    - Select "Make Preset"
    (click/hold on "Manual" and scroll up to top)

    - Then, type in a name for your custom EQ setting
    that is exactly the same as one of the factory preset names
    (e.g. Rock)

    iTunes will come back and say:
    "A preset with this name already exists. Do you want to replace it?"

    - CLICK YES!

    - On your iPod, go to Settings / Playback / EQ, and select "Rock".

    - Sync your iPod

    Ta Da!

    - Your new custom EQ setting (with a factory EQ name) will now be operative on your iPod.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Use & enjoy.

    PS: recommend only subtractive EQ (i.e. do not set any slider bar above 0db. It will sound better that way - less clipping will occur. Only the "relative position" among the slider bars counts when changing sound signature - their absolute position doesn't - except, (when using subtractive EQ) the need to add a bit more volume to achieve the same SPL)
