I currently have to use my work laptop (XP machine) in order to use iTunes to sync my iPhone (my main machine runs Linux) and it works fine.

The problem is that we have a 20MB limit on our profile space ('Documents and Settings' folder) as it gets synced with a server when we log in or out. Everytime I connect my iPhone the backup that is created puts me over my limit by 90MB which means I cannot shutdown or reboot my computer until I free up some space. This basically involves deleting the iPhone backup pretty much as soon as it is created.

My question is, is there a way to change the default location that iTunes uses to store the backup? I just need to store it anywhere other than the 'Documents and Settings' folder. Failing that is there any way to disable the backup feature completely?

Failing that, is there any plans for a Linux version of iTunes

If you transfer the photos to your computer, delete them from the iPhone, then sync them back via iTunes they will no longer use space in the backup folder.
