There are 2 ways to install slingbox under Ubuntu (using wine).

I have a slingbox classic and have run under Mint along with various versions of Ubuntu including my Mini9.

One way is to go to WineHQ and search for sling.

There are step by step instructions at the bottom of this page.

I did this before I reflashed to Ubuntu 8.10.
It functions pretty good... of course not as good as my desktop

Try this out. Hope this helps.
