My isp has repositories for lucid and I have updated the kernel from
there. I also thought about updating OpenOffice as well, but I'll leave
that for the time being.

My main concern with this was that I have to use ndiswrapper for my
wireless card which is not installed from the live cd, so I have to make
arrangements to download it via another machine and copy it to this
machine. I can't get it from the repositories until I have the wireless
card working for internet access and I can't get the wireless card
working until I get ndiswrapper from the respositories.
