My 1 Gig shuffle mounts, reads and writes fine on Suse 9.3.
Konqueror even has an ipod:// protocol.

I can see the music and settings directories
  that macs and Windows don't show.

But the only way I know to unmount it is to type   umount /media/ipod
  as root.  Oh well.

Suse9.3 is proud of its iPod awareness...
