Thanks again everyone for the tips and help to introduce me to Ubuntu. It seems to me that if I got 8.10 server edition, it would do exactly what I want. This is because I want to install php, mysql, apache and I cant seem to do so on 7.1 unless I upgrade it.
Is it at all posible that anyone of you knows where I can procure/buy a CD for 8.10 server? I tried downloading it but I would have to leave it on 4 or 5 days to complete the download at my speeds (tsk tsk). Upgrading my 7.10 presents similar issues further to which I cant get my modem to work on ubuntu.

The reason why ubuntu cannot find the packages is because your package inventory is out of date.
Connect to the internet and type in the following commands:-
sudo apt-get update
this command updates your package inventory telling your ubuntu which packages exist in the repos and where to get them.
This will take about 2 minutes to update (depending on your link)
Once this is done, you can now install your software by using the command:-
sudo apt-get install mysql-server apache2 php4
this will install all the packages one after the other. No need to issue 3 command in sequence.
These applications are large so you may want to go visit a friend in the mean time.
