Ubuntu 6.06 is way out of life for desktop support. It would probably be better for you to use a newer release of ubuntu, or a different distro.

Wired internet should be as easy as just hooking up an ethernet cable (in most cases, unless you have a network card that has no linux support). Wireless could be more tricky, it would depend on what wireless network card you have.

The question is if the OP uses the server or desktop edition. The server edition is supported til June 2011.
But in anyway, the EOL comes soon, so I would also recommend to install a recent version, either the new 11.04 or , for longer support, the 10.04 LTS version
