when i've done this in the past i created a linux environment based on 
the instructions here:

after you get things setup you can chroot into this environment like so:
chroot /compat/ubuntu /bin/bash

then from there you can run apt-get, dpkg etc.  the wiki has some other 
details so def read it closely.
