Ubuntu 8.04 on 1505n

If there is a 7.10 install that includes the proprietary drivers, but
not an 8.04, I would install 7.10 and then do a dist-upgrade to 8.04.
That way you get the drivers and the new distro version.

If you haven't done it before,
     1. Install 7.10
     2. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list
     3. comment out any references to the 7.10 CD
     4. replace every other reference to 'gutsy' with 'hardy'
     5. save
     6. sudo aptitude update
     7. sudo aptitude dist-upgrade
If all goes well, you should then have 8.04 installed with the
proprietary drivers.

You can use the 7.10 image for the 1420n, as it most closely resembles
what’s on the 1505n (in fact, it will be identical), just choose the
image according to your video card (Intel or Nvidia). I can’t comment
for 8.04, but you can check
