I'm having a bit of trouble upgrading from Ubuntu 8.04 to 8.10.

I have basically two dilemmas:
1. I can't upgrade via internet, for some reason, Ubuntu can't connect to my new router
Therefore, I tried:
2. Upgrading directly from the Ubuntu 8.10 live disk. However, when I do that and I use the command gksu "sh /cdromupgrade", it gives me several error messages.

Error message 1: /home/user/.gtkrc-2.0:26 error: unexpected identifier 'panel', expected keyword - e.g. 'style'
Error message 2: /usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:211: Invalid symbolic color 'selected_bg_color'
Error message 3: /usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:211: error: invalid identifier 'selected_bg_color', expected valid identifier

I only wish to know the answer to the second dilemma since it is more important to me, however, if you guys know whats wrong with the first dilemma, that would be great.

Anyone know how to undo that?

assuming you saved the original .gtkrc file, just backtrack and undo what you did. simple.
