If you don’t want Mac4Lin and need a step by step guide for more control, you can check the below link. It is written particulary for Ubuntu hardy, but should work in Ubuntu 9.04 as well.
Note: As I mentioned in another post, these tools are experimental and not very stable. If you want a stable Linux, you would better stay away from these. But if you want to experiment and want some eye candy, experiment it. It is cool
