Ah, that's the problem then. You're probably on 4.3.1. Hold home+power until you see the Apple logo, this should boot the iPod. Then go to Settings>General>About>Version and see what it says.

The only jailbreak for 4.3.1 right now is tethered. You should get TinyUmbrella ( now, and save your SHSH's, to avoid problems in the future. Also, if you have a used or refurbished iPod, you may have 4.2.1 SHSH's on file, and if you do you can downgrade.
