welcome to LQ!!

How can we answer this question if we don't know what problem you are having???!!!

If you have a CD for version 8.04, you will lose all updates by re-installing from that CD.

This is like getting blood from a stone :/. Please post the error message you're getting. Don't you agree that it's a relevant part of your problem? A more descriptive thread title wouldn't have hurt, either.

If you downloaded the OS, but have no CD, how did you install it?

Echoing what Nylex said, you need to give complete details to get good help here.
