To answer your original question, I don't know about iTunes 8, but
here is a recent article about how to get things up and running with
iTunes 7.3. I haven't tried it, and YMMV.
iTunes 7.3 does support the iTunes Plus (AkA, DRM-free music), so you
should be able to use it to buy the songs.
You should also note that only 80% of the store is DRM free at the
given time. It will be 100% by April.
