    Need to Install 8.04 but Repositories Not Found

    I have a need to install a copy of Ubuntu 8.04 because we had a server crash and with the particular software that server was running, I need to rebuild exactly the same environment in order to restore from backup before I migrate to a new (supported) environment.

    I have installed 8.04 (32 bit) but any attempt to install packages or do an apt-get update gives me a series of 404 Not Found errors. I'm assuming that the repositories listed in /etc/apt/source.list are no longer valid. Can anyone point me to where I can find those repositories?

    Code:
    Err http://security.ubuntu.com hardy-security/main Packages
      404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.184 80]
    Err http://security.ubuntu.com hardy-security/restricted Packages
      404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.184 80]
    Err http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com hardy/main Packages
      404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.156 80]
    Err http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com hardy/restricted Packages
      404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.156 80]

    Err http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com hardy/main Sources

    Err http://security.ubuntu.com hardy-security/restricted Sources
      404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.184 80]
    and so on ...
    Thanks,
