Connecting iPod to new Powerbook without deleting all songs?

I know that there's a button combination to hold when you connect your iPod to prevent from an auto-sync that erases everything on the iPod, but I cannot remember it. I'd look in the manual, but I lost it!
Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

I'm in the same boat: I'm stuck until I remember that button combination to hold down to prevent auto-sync from erasing everything. I even looked in the manual today but couldn't find it. Would very much appreciate this information!
Best,
Lionel
