Linux doesn't support writing to HFS+ with journalling, but it reads
it fine. Thus your message. Doesn't matter which iPod it is, it's
the journalled version of HFS+ that's the issue.
You can hook it back up to a Mac and turn journalling off using Disk
Utility (like it was in 10.2) and it'll work fine, or reformat it
using a Windows machine running iTunes to FAT32.
I'm sure there's a way to do this from linux as well if you don't have
access to either a Mac or a Windows box.
