Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

There must be an error in your sources.list as the link in the error posted suggests. Look at the last two entries of this sources.list, these links are correct and what your entries for secuity should look like.
If you want a newer version, you are better off using Jaunty or Karmic. Ibex is too old. Or else keep your Hardy.
Not a very good idea to use an old version. Now that Karmic is out, Ibex must have lost support.
My strong suggestion is, get Jaunty. It is faster than Karmic and much more stable. I upgraded to Karmic and have been facing issues with speed and audio. Jaunty was much happy to run on my dell desktop.
Why update? backup all your data and go for a new install. Clean installs are always recommended. And it looks like your system is already clean that it came up with Hardy that you want to first upgrade before putting it to use.
If you do not have Karmic discs, you can use Jaunty if you have one. Else if discs take time to come, you may contact some local linux users group around. There sure must be one around where you live and you could happily get the help.
