Can't update repository indexes in ubuntu 7.04


Hi there

After years to years, I am getting bored with window os, so I want to try something new, and ubuntu 7.04 is my choice. After installed the new OS dual boot with my window vista, everything seem fine until I want to update the OS, I got some errors. I hope that you guys can help me out

****Result of using update manager:

Could not download all repository indexes

The repository might be no longer available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and the correct writing of the repository address in the preferences.

7.04 is old now. It means 2007 April. The current issue is 9.04. That means 2009 April.

The repositories for Feisty were moved. See "Re: ubuntu 7.04 repositories" at http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...24&postcount=4

I changed the content of source.list to the new address. After that, I get the following error.
E: The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/hhttp could not be found.
E: The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/hhttp could not be found.
How can I resolve?
Thank you
