Re: NVidia Driver
Were you connected to the internet when you attempted to activate the drivers?
If the hardware drivers applet didn't work for you, try opening the Synaptic Package Manager(System menu> Administration> Synaptic Package Manager), search for 'nvidia drivers' and select the version you want(eg. nvidia-glx-180 or nvidia-glx-177). After installing the drivers it is necessary to restart the system, open 'Hardware Drivers', and activate the drivers you want. before you can use the drivers and enable desktop effects.
PS: The nVidia driver recommended for Ubuntu 8.10 is version 180. Install the nvidia-180-modaliases package as well in Synaptic if you want it to be available in 'Hardware Drivers'
