Put it in dfu and open iTunes. If iTunes sees it, close iTunes and run GP. If iTunes doesn't see it, then GP won't either, and you have a driver issue.

That and plus the 3g is not supported by Greenpois0n. Search google for Redsn0w and use that. :)

The other day I spent a long time walking somebody through downloading and restoring 4.2.1 on his iPod touch 3g. I can confirm that if you actually have a 2g, 3g firmware isn't gonna work. ;)
