You could restore.
Page 111 of the manual:
"If you restore, the latest version of iPod touch software is reinstalled, default settings
are restored, and data stored on iPod touch is deleted, including downloaded
applications, songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other
data. In iTunes, you can also restore from a backup without deleting data stored on
"Erase all content and settings: Connect iPod touch to your computer or a power
adapter. Choose General > Reset and tap “Erase All Content and Settings.”
This feature resets all settings to their defaults and removes all your information and
media on your iPod touch by overwriting the data stored on iPod touch."
If what you want is for the software on THAT iPod to stay at 2.2.1, then all you have to do is a simple restore in iTunes, and everything is wiped from the iPod. When it asks to sync after the restore click on No.
If you want to know whether a new iPod that you get will have 2.2.1, you are also covered. Its a buy it once kinda of deal, and its already on your computer. And anyway a new iPod will come pre-loaded with the latest software.
