Yes, it is use since 2000 in the Univesity of Bielefeld (trustix).
And there are several installtions in Germany on SuSE (CipUX 2.x)
after 2003. So 2.x was completly platform independent. My wih is
that 3.2.x will became platform indipendent again.

Actual I do not know how difficult is is. But it should be possible.
This would be the first time on Ubuntu. So we might have to do some 
investigations on package names.

If you would to try it on Ubuntu, then I can help you! 
Do you have the download URL from your Dapper preview? 
(I never used Ubuntu, it always failed to install)

Well, if you do not have Webmin on Ubuntu, we have the following

(1) Install Webmin on Ubuntu
    - then I point you to the right files
(2) Only use the shell API.  (CipUX can be uese without webmin)
(3) Help on developing an other GUI.
    - there is a project ongoing in France to develop a CipUX Moodle
      plugn in PHP
    - There is the plans to migrate the webmin modules, so that they
      can run under Apache
    - we can found a group who develop a Desktop GUI

The translation of Webmin GUI was made by the Webmin lang mechanism.
But I am a friend of *.po files. But there was no Time to implement.
The Frensh team have translated some parts of the CipUX Webmin
Interface to French. This is very easy.
