I've used gtkpod to get songs off of ipods with both apple and windows
formatted ipods, and then used faad/lame to make mp3s.
(If the songs are stored as mp3, then obviously no conversion is needed.)

The trick is mounting the ipod. gtkpod accesses the ipod thru a normal
unix disk mount. for me its:
<snipped from fstab>
### IPOD ###
#/dev/sda3 /mnt/ipod hfsplus noauto,user,rw 0 0
/dev/sda2 /mnt/ipod vfat noauto,user,rw 0 0

windows partitioned ipods have their data in /dev/sda2, and mac ipods
have their data in /dev/sda3
