One option would be to download the new Ubuntu Netbook remix. http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download-netbook
That page also has directions on installing from a flash drive.

I never have and never will use my recovery CD, but I can tell you howI think it should work.
On a computer with a CD drive, UNetbootin should be able to take the recovery CD and place it on a USB flash drive, memory card with a USB reader, or a USB hard drive. Be aware that it probably has to erase any files on the target drive in the process.
And you probably don't need the driver CD, just the recovery CD.
If you're using a Mini 9, you could also consider downloading a newer version of Ubuntu than the one Dell ships. If you're using a Mini 10 or 12, I'd stick with the default.
