Sync iPod music at work and home?

I just read the PC World article “20 Things They Don’t Want You to Know“, and specifically focused on “You Can Use an iPod to Move Music“.

Apple doesn’t make it easy to employ your IPod to duplicate your music collection on both your work and home PCs, but you can do it. If you have a Windows machine, simply plug in your IPod, find it listed in Windows Explorer, and make sure your machine can view hidden files.

Open the ‘IPod_Control’ folder and copy the ‘My_Music’ folder to your PC. Import those tracks into ITunes and put them in order there. Select Edit, Preferences, and choose the Advanced tab. Select a location for your music library by clicking the Change button, and then check Keep iTunes Music folder organized.

Question: Would this also accomplish synchronizing my iPod to my home and work computers?
