My music is sorted in Rhythmbox.  I have just a cover.jpg in each album
folder.  When I plug my iPhone 3GS into my Ubuntu 10.10 x64 computer, I get
prompted to open Rhythmbox.  When I open RB, I see my iPhone in the list of
devices in the left pane.  I can then drag the songs from the list on the
right pane, to the iPhone and RB automatically converts FLAC to mp3 (using a
gstreamer-plugin.  Can't remember which one.  Dirty maybe?  There was an
error when I tried to do that, and I Googled it).  Each song in RB has a
cover, only because RB knows there's one in the album folder.  It takes that
image, and somehow, makes every song associated with that album art show
that picture.  My assumption is there's a field in the iPod database that
associates an album with a single image.  RB just fits the right image with
the album.  I am not using the feature of auto-downloading the cover art
from the web.  I find them all manually using Google Images.
