Ipod or other MP3 thing to radio

Is there a way to plug an ipod or other type of MP3 thing into a stock stero. I am thinking about getting the Dell version of the Ipod. I have a single cd mp3 player in my truck if it matters.

Radio shack, Walmart, Target, any discount department type store really. Although you're bound to mostly find the small portable battery powered ones. If you want a decent 12VDC one then you're going to have more trouble.

Dave of Dave and Julie fame had one that he used to install a Sirius receiver in his company leased Audi. He seemed pretty happy w/ it. I can't remember the maker or where he bought it though..

if you have rca inputs in the back of your cd player, you can run a $3 cord from the headphone jack of the mp3 player into them... stereo and better quality than radio...
