I hate the iTunes way.  I hate how iTunes refuses to sync stuff unless you add 
it to the library.  I hate the way iTunes will not automatically update what 
exists in a directory that you have told it holds your collection.  Dead 
files remain unless you delete them one by one.  New files have to be added 
manually.  Renamed files; same nonsense.  Why do people like this program so

That said, you can mimic the itunes random playlists by defining a smart 
playlist in amarok for selecting random tunes.  You have to manually delete 
the existing ipod tunes before replacing them.  

You can skip a step by right clicking your defined playlist and selecting "add 
to media player".

Admittedly, its a few more steps, but you gain in better collection 
maintenance and more control over the shuffle contents.
