I suppose it's possible, since my iPod is the only FireWire device I own. It's not like it happens every time I turn the computer on; I just found it really odd and amusing that the only time XP ever shits itself is when I have my iPod (from Apple--We Make Software That Doesn't Crash) plugged in. In fact, it took all of 15 minutes for iPod and iTunes to blue screen my box after first install.

Well, yes, but that's because 98 (and 95 and ME, although I never touched an ME box to find out if it had a blue screen on the off chance that whatever ME had was transmissible through contact, like a cold) was a steaming pile of shit that didn't know how to recover from a serious program error. OTOH, I wouldn't even have this problem with 98, because 98 has sub-minimal FireWire support, and probably even less USB 2.0 support.
