li-ion batteries first charge

Well I just got myself an ipod and wondering how to charge the batteries for first time use.

Im sure that with Li-ion I can just do the standard charges making sure that the first 3 charges are complete discharge/charge cycles. then I can top up whenever I want.

but I can remember somewhere u should charge some batteries for 24 hrs for the first 3 charges. thats probably with ni-cads or something like that.

The instructions that came with my Acer laptop said to condition the Li-Ion battery with 3 full charge/discharge cycles to start with.

Then normal use to only charge when the battery was discharged fully through normal use.

Also, to remove the battery if the laptop was running on the adapter for any length of time< (after the battery had been recharged).
