I read that iTunes 8 could be installed with wine, so I downloaded the Windows installer for iTunes and tried. Got nothing, so I tried updating wine to 1.1.26. It installed Quicktime, which didn't work anyway, but no iTunes. Is there something in wine that can be configured to make it work, or can't iTunes through wine be done? I am a new user a don't have much experience with wine, so don't know what to try.

Thanks in advance :)

Where did you read that?

I have never seen a fully functional iTunes in Wine. The ratings for it are not great:
