I currently have an iPod mini (purchased 2005) which I use in conjunction with iTunes on my PC. My mini is now on its last legs, and so my partner and I are going to get some replacements: two iPod shuffles (one each) and a classic to put our combined music collections on.
There are a couple of things that I could use help with.
1.) How do I connect the three new iPods that we're going to buy to my existing iTunes library?
2.) Is it possible to create a combined iTunes library that is shared between my PC and my partner's PC, so that we can each share each other's music? (My partner is not currently on iTunes and would have to sign up first).
3.) Is it possible to use our shared iPod classic both on my PC and on my partner's? (My PC runs on windows xp and my partner's on windows 2000).
Thanks for your help!

There are several different ways to use multiple iPods with one computer, have a look at this help page for suggestions and choose the method that suits you best: How to use multiple iPods with one computer
If you want to connect and use an iPod on more than one computer or with more than one library you need to change the update preference in the iPod Summary tab to "Manually manage music and videos" and click Apply. The content of iTunes and the iPod are not syncronised in this mode so the two can be different. You can directly access the content of the iPod and play it through iTunes and you can drag and drop whatever you want to the iPod from either library (iPod shuffles can only be used with one library by the way):
Using iPod with Multiple computers
Managing content manually on iPod and iPhone
Syncing Music to iPod
Something else to be aware of when using an iPod in manual mode is that the "Do Not Disconnect" message will remain on the display until you physically eject the device: Safely Disconnect IPod
