You'll have to be more specific than "it didn't work" if you want meaningful help. What is the exact error message/symptom/behavior?

Unetbootin is not part of the Ubuntu project; Ubuntu actually has their own Live USB creator that you can read about here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download

And don't use your iPod; buy a cheap 1gb thumb drive for your Ubuntu experiment.
