It's not as simple as that.

I just tried Ubuntu this week, because my old hd died, so I had to restore data from backups anyway, and they were handing out free Ubuntu disks at school.

Unfortunately, the disks turned out to be Breezy.

Now, I don't mind upgrading, but according to here, you need the breezy repositories to do so.

I don't mind the lack of updates, but taking down the repositories makes upgrading unnecessarily difficult.

Breezy doesn't seem to recognize my cd-burner, so that's not an option.

Any ideas on how to get upgrade done?
