Yes, full Ubuntu will run on the Mini 9. However, it's installer is only available as a ISO, intended for a CD or DVD.
What would work (hopefully) is:
Booting the 32bit Ubuntu LiveCD on your Mac (Intel CPU, right?), then follow the Linux instructions here for putting the Ubuntu ISO on a USB drive (from the CD you just booted off).
You could do the same with a PowerPC Mac, but you'd need to boot off a PowerPC LiveCD and then transfer a separate 32bit ISO file to the USB drive.

Boot and run Linux from a USB flash memory stick | USB Pen Drive Linux
Other than issues with the Broadcom wireless...UNR works well
