Currently I'm using Ubuntu 8.04, this is the first time I'm using a Linux operating system, and I understand that soon there will be an 8.10 version, Intrepid Ibex, what are the implications of this on me? Do I have to upgrade? How do I upgrade? When should I upgrade?

Understandable that you cannot get on My Space, and you are bored.
Your school, as have many others, have blocked your access to My Space, because they believe there are problems with the website. Viruses could easily wind up in your computer, and affect the school computers, plus a host of other issues.
At least this is my theory of what they believe.
Install Ubuntu? NOT a good idea! Why?
1.Because you if you override the settings on your laptop, the school will know it, for one. Could take the laptop away?
2.Can you access the administrator account? Nope. You can't install programs, delete programs, or access any administrator functions.
3.Ubuntu Linux is a WHOLE NEW ballgame. It isn't anything like Windows, and isn't supposed to be. It's like comparing Apples to Oranges. Both are good, (IMHO), but they are different. [I use Ubuntu Linux 8.10 - Intrepid Ibex]
Know someone that Does have a computer you can access My Space?
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.
Best way to find out is to download a live CD. If you're planning on running Debian, using the Ubuntu Live CD should demonstrate whether current Debian works on your system.
It may not auto-configure all devices in Live CD - don't be surprised if you find that USB headset or WIFI card doesn't work on boot - but at least it will give you a clear idea of whether the system works or not on your machine.
Ubuntu's 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) is reported to boot on the e200 in Live CD mode; you need to use "safe" graphics mode to do the install (after which you can install the correct video drivers).
