I can access my shuffle with Konqueror (as a usb disk), in amaroK and in 
GTKpod.  When I plug the shuffle into the usb port, it is recognized and 
placed on the desktop -- BUT NOT MOUNTED.  If you get this, right click the 
ipod icon on the desktop and select mount.  By default it should be mounted 
on /media/sda1 (or sdb2, etc. depending on other usb devices you may have 
connected).  In Amarok, go to the media device tab and click the connect 
button.  Once connected, your songs should be displayed.

list, or right click the song and choose the command to queue it for the 

If this doesn't work, then format it for windows, and try again.  The 
procedure for gtkpod is similar.  The advantage to gtkpod is that it knows 
about the amount of free space on your ipod, a feature not yet supported on 
amarok 1.3.x.
