This is what I'm seeing...

iPod automounted, as it should.
using rythmbox 0.9.0 i can see what's on it and songs to it. i tried to unmount it by righclicking on the ipod's icon on my desktop and selecting 'unmount' but it said it couldnt and the icon disapeared off of the desktop
It unmounted--that's why the icon disappeared.
i tried to unmount it in file browser, and for some reason there are 2 ipods listed with my drives? when i right-click it says "mount" not "unmount." when i try to mount it, i get this error
It's already unmounted, so the right-click option is now "mount." You probably can't mount it manually because you're a user, not root.
Do you have G4 iPod by chance?
The G3 my wife and I have works just fine--automounting and unmounting.
However, you may want to try (just to be safe) ejecting
instead of unmounting, and doing so from the command-line.
sudo eject /dev/sda1
