With your iPod connected, click on the name of your device and look around in the summary for the device. There you should see the option to manually manage music. You may also have 'fill empty space with music' clicked.
Also, on the music tab, do you have it checked to sync everything or just chosen items?
I can choose what's on my ipad and iPod. So the option exists, it's just a matter of telling iTunes that you want that control.

I dont want all the music i got on itunes in my ipod, but even if i dont mark some of the music it still goes over to the ipod.
When the iPod is connected to iTunes, look on the iPod/Summary pane, under the Options heading, and make sure Sync only ticked songs and videos is selected.
