Need a LOT more information, including...
Computer OS and Version
Size of iPod in GB
If you don't know this info, or if you aren't very tech savvy, you DEFINITELY DON'T want to mess with jailbreaking.
And do NOT hold myself or ANYONE ELSE on this forum liable if the iPod gets messed up. Jailbreak at your OWN RISK.

Jailbreakme is for 4.0.1 down to 3.1.x. To be specific.
It would be wise to post the information requested by dmklunk for the best help.

i just got a new 2g ipod today and jailbroke it. You have to update it to its latest firmware which is 4.2.1 for ipod touch 2g then download greenpoison and follow its instructions and voila!

I wouldn't recommend loading 4.2.1 on an iPT 2g.
You're probably better off staying with 3.1.x- if you can. (Some newer apps won't work though).
4.2 is a memory hog on poor little ancient machines like this.

It should run decently with multitasking and wallpaper disabled. I had mine on 4.2.1 like that and it was fine, surely slower than when it was on 3.1.x but the person I traded it off to I figured would prefer it on 4.2.1 bc ya don't trade an iPod nano for an iPod touch if you didn't want some app action
Many apps nowadays really need iOS 4 and that's a bummer.
