Default upgrade from Ubuntu 7.10 to Ubuntu 8.04

Hi,
at present I am using in Ubuntu 7.10 and i would like to upgrade to Ubuntu
8.04.

So I downloaded Alternate CD iso of Ubuntu 8.04 and then I burned them in
the CD.

After burning the CD, I list the the files as below
----------------------
verman@verman-desktop:/media/cdrom$ ls -l
total 174
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root root 942 2008-04-22 11:37 cdromupgrade
dr-xr-xr-x 3 root root 2048 2008-04-22 22:59 dists
dr-xr-xr-x 3 root root 2048 2008-04-22 22:59 doc
dr-xr-xr-x 3 root root 2048 2008-04-22 23:00 install
dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 12288 2008-04-22 23:00 isolinux
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 151400 2008-04-22 23:00 md5sum.txt
dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 2048 2008-04-22 22:59 pics
dr-xr-xr-x 4 root root 2048 2008-04-22 22:59 pool
dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 2048 2008-04-22 22:59 preseed
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 221 2008-04-22 22:59 README.diskdefines
lr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 1 2008-04-22 22:59 ubuntu -> .
----------------------

I found a shell script file cdromupgrade and tried to excute the file and
found errors as below.
----------------------
verman@verman-desktop:/media/cdrom$ sudo ./cdromupgrade
tar: ./dists/stable/main/dist-upgrader/binary-all//hardy.tar.gz: Cannot
open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
Could not find the upgrade application in the archive, exiting
----------------------

the error indicate that No such file or directory but the files are
present in the CD.
----------------------
verman@verman-desktop:/media/cdrom/dists/stable/main/dist-upgrader/binary-all$
ls -l
total 672
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 687228 2008-04-22 13:00 hardy.tar.gz
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 191 2008-04-22 13:42 hardy.tar.gz.gpg
----------------------

Kindly help me in upgrading else give alternate solution to upgrade from
7.10 to 8.04.

Thanks,

Verman
