The easiest solution I've found for converting files for iPod playback is WinFF. It is much smaller and faster than SUPER (and still free).

    320x240 Is The Current Resolution And The Best Way To Convert The Video Is to Use The MPEG-4 Codec Via QuickTime Pro Or Windows™ Media Player Or Watever Video Program You Have. Depending On Which One You Use You Can Adjust The Bit Rate (Compression) For The Best Combo Of Size/Quality.
