Currently running Ubuntu 8.04 hardy Heron, very happy with it, my problem is that Intrepid Ibex will be released soon and I don't know if I should upgrade because Hardy is LTS (Long Term Support what exactly does this mean?).
I'm not an experienced user, what do you guys think I should do?

This is a guide to help you install Google Chrome on Ubuntu Hardy Heron, there are other ways, but this is the one that works for me, hope it will help you.
Ready to give it a shoot?
Step 1 - Update WINE In order for the Chrome installation on Ubuntu to be successful you have to update your WINE version to 1.1.4. Type (or copy) this in to your command line - wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list sudo apt-get update
Step 2 – Get all necessary software
Winetricks is a script that will allow you to get all the necessary software you need for this installation. The last command below will install Firefox into WINE, this is needed for the third step.
You can try looking in the manufacturer website to see if they have made a driver for Linux. Actually, most Linux distros have a nice set of drivers, but not all hardware out there have good Linux support.Surprisingly, Ubuntu 8.10 detected one CompUSA USB wireless adapter for which they don't have the XP drivers.

If you cannot log in the i suggest that you reinstall Ubuntu from the cd you have , now if you prefer you can order a free cd from from ubuntu and you will have the latest intrepid 8.10. any problem come back to me firstname.lastname@example.org
From what I know, both your motherboard and your hard drive work with Ubuntu. I would try the newest release, 8.04 (Hardy Heron).
Try setting the motherboard into AHCI mode rather than IDE mode (you should be able to change this under hard drive settings in your BIOS)
Also, the problem may be with your optical drive. Try swapping that out.
If you can't solve it from there, if you haven't already, try posting on the ubuntu forums.
