Acer aspire one Ubuntu Linux help

I installed Ubuntu 8.04 on my Acer aspire one kav60 and I can't connect to the Internet now. I'm assuming that you have to have a driver for it but I dont know what driver I need.

Download and install Ubuntu 12.04 or 13.04 which are the supported versions at the moment, and perhaps already include the driver for your wireless card.
8.04 has been unsuported since long ago download the 32bit perhaps if your computer doesnt support the 64bit flavor.
this is the link

If your video chip is limited perhaps you can download and install a light weight graphical interface version such as Xubuntu or Lubuntu

Good luck to you
