I was just able to get my shield running on a Duemilanove. I copied code from www.ladyada.net.
It didn’t work. I had to switch the numbers (2,3) to (3,2) in the call to NewSoftSerial.
This is the top of the code from ladyada. It has my change in it.
// A simple sketch to read GPS data and parse the $GPRMC string
// see http://www.ladyada.net/make/gpsshield for more info
NewSoftSerial mySerial = NewSoftSerial(3, 2); // this was reversed in the example. I fixed it by luck
//#define GPSRATE 38400
