I am not 100% sure whether there is an updated 6.10 CD image, but if there is you can simply download it and burn a new copy. You cannot update an existing CD.

Alternatively, you could simply follow the various upgrade steps from 6.10 to 8.04. I believe you may have to upgrade to one or more of the interim releases as well. It might be simpler just to back up your sensitive documents and then re-install Ubuntu with the new 8.04 release when it's available. 8.04 is a new Long-Term Support release, so that's probably a good plan of action :D
