Proxy error when using Add/Remove Programs


Hello to all!

Im quite new to using LINUX so please bear with me.

Recently. Ive managed to install an UBUNTU Studio 8.04 on an old machine - Pentium3, 3x128MB RAM, 32Mb videocard, and 8 gb of HD.

My problem is how can i bypass Proxy authentication whenever I used Add/Remove Programs? I want to install open office suite and I usually get connecting to the internet using our proxy.

Thanks guys, in advance!

God Bless you all!

add/remove

This is a windows thing, ie , 'add/remove' are you on a works computer or one that has been passed on? Linux is free so you can reinstall at any time for no extra cost.
