you need to have your itunes first before you can download anything in the internet. If you don't like to download from itunes which means paying, you can use the internet to download music like mp3 then just import it in itunes and you can transfer the music to your ipod. Mind you that downloading music from the net is illegal so it's better to buy online if you want to support the artist. And you can choose to use some programs to help you. MP3 Free Downloader is recommended. http://www.mp3freedownloader.com/download.html Both Free edition and Pro edition are enabled.
