Are you connected to the internet?
What version of Ubuntu are you using?

Are you using version 6.06 LTS or 6.10? Take a look at this Ubuntu page: https://help.ubuntu.com/

It lists the currently supported versions. Although version 6.06 LTS is listed, I doubt whether it is supported, since LTS (long-term support) versions are supported for 3 years. If your internet connection is broadband, why not download the ISO image of the latest version, 10.04 LTS, from the Ubuntu site and burn it into a CD? Or, order a free CD of this version from Ubuntu. Ubuntu has made great strides since the year 2006.
