Hi PhoenixSteel,
what file have you downloaded? Maybe a *.exe? There isn't any iTunes for Linux (and Ubuntu), so you have to use any other player. But you can try to install iTunes with wine (you can install wine so: 'sudo apt-get install wine'). Than you have to type in the terminal 'wine setup.exe'. But I'm not sure, if it works. But there are many good music players for Ubuntu, too. For example amaroK or rhythmbox. And when you like to use sync your music to the iPod, you can use gtkpod.
