"Dellbuntu" 8.04 uses the lpia architecture rather than the "standard" i386. This means that you can't install an i386 package unless you repackage it following these instructions: [ubuntu] HOWTO: Repackage i386 deb for in lpia (for Dell Mini9) - Ubuntu Forums
Many Mini 9 users find that it's less hassle to replace Dellbuntu with the standard i386 version of Ubuntu 8.10 or 9.04. This site has some great how-tos: Ubuntu on the Dell Mini 9
Finally, the Ubuntu Forums are a fantastic resource. (Be sure to mention you're using the Dell version of Ubuntu 8.04 when you post.) Ubuntu Forums
My advice when you're feeling frustrated is to tackle your problems one-by-one, and be specific and descriptive when posting for help. Good luck!
