Try posting this in the Ubuntu Remix forum, you may get better help there.

I just got my Mini with Dell Linux, but I reloaded mine with Ubuntu 9.04 from a USB thumbdrive. I used a 2GB Cruzer Micro and unetbootin to load the thumbdrive, the install went without issue. I have not used my Dell CD, so I really can't provide any pointers.
