Have you tried using the upgrade instructions for the Alternate CD at the below URL?

Try the server way of upgrading (https://help.ubuntu.com/8.10/serverguide/C/installing-upgrading.html). Shouldn't be any different except that there's no gui.

didn't notice the above link contained these instructions...

Well, I was actually pointing to the alternate CD section, because the OP indicated that he wanted to upgrade without the machine having to use an internet connection; something do-release-upgrade requires.
