8.04.1 is the latest Hardy LiveCD.

8.04.1 does have ACPI and network support. Maybe it doesn't work with your 
hardware but you didn't mention what problems you have. But then you 
won't have much luck with 8.04.2 either because it will not bring new 
features. The difference between 8.04 and 8.04.* is that the latter have 
the updates of existing packages on the CD/DVD which were available at 
the time of the release. That means you don't have to fetch that many 
updates after the installation.

However, there is some hope that the upcoming Ubuntu version 8.10 
(Intrepid Ibex) has better support for your hardware. That version is due 
on October, 30th. If you are adventurous, the beta release is due today.
