By now, there are GUI programs that can jailbreak your shiny new iPod Touch 2g without any problems, but that doesn't mean you can't still do things the hard way! Over at Ipod Touch Fans, a user named jfb392 has created an easy to follow tutorial on how to do just that. It's very easy to follow, but it does involve command line, and putting your iPod into DFU mode. If you don't know how to get into DFU mode, simply hold the power button and your home button for ten seconds exactly, then release the power button, and continue holding the home button for another 20 seconds. The screen should be completely blank, with no backlight, and iTunes should recognize it as being in Recovery mode. If the screen is on, you didn't do it right, make sure to be precise with your timing. Remember, this is just the tethered Jailbreak, so if you need to restart your 'pod, you'd better be near a computer! There are people out there who are making dongles that can send the scripts to your iPod, just in case. All links are on the site, so have at it!
