I have a acer aspire 1 netbook running Linux that i bought recently and i want to install ubuntu 8.10 desktop edition. I have bought an external disk drive and it has come up with a load of files and i don't know what to do from here

I have tried re-booting to get to install screen which is what i did when i upgraded my other laptop to ubuntu but that doesn't work on my netbook

please can someone help!!!

Did you go into BIOS to make it boot from USB? Did you install Grub to the external HH?
