You can add the iPod in gtkpod using the Repository/iPod Options
dialog from the Edit menu.

So, the versions of libgpod and gtkpod in Fedora currently don't fully
support those models.  Mostly it works, but there are some issues with
artwork (coverflow in particular I believe).  When adding the iPod,
you'll have to tell it that it's a 3g nano, as the 4g selection isn't
in the menus in the Fedora packages.

If you're game for a little more work, see my post the other day about
updated libgpod and gtkpod packages (but pay particular attention to
the notes about dependencies and support :):
