I myself managed to install RED5 on my current ubuntu maverick installation.

Step 1:

Install required Libraries..

01 apt-get update
02 apt-get install java-package ( Skip this step if it dosnt gives output)
03 apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
04 apt-get install sun-java6-jre
05 apt-get install ant
06 apt-get install subversion

Step 2:

Download and install RED5

01 wget http://www.red5.org/downloads/0_9/red5-0.9.0.tar.gz
02 tar xvfz red5-0.9.0.tar.gz
03 mv red5-0.9.0 red5
04 mv red5 /usr/share/

Step 3:

Test the installation.

01 cd /usr/share/red5
02 sh red5.sh

You should see a bunch of text appear, the last line looking like:

[INFO] [Launcher:/installer] org.red5.server.service.Installer Installer service created

Now try going to http://your-server-address:5080 in a web-browser. You should see:

This page is used to test the proper operation of the Red5 server after it has been installed. If you can read this page it means that the Red5 server installed at this site is working properly.
