Hi Abhi,

           You can use Synaptic ( GIU Tool for Package Management ).
To start it try this
>From Menu --> System --> Administration --> Synaptic Package Manager.
To use synaptic read about it

If you have any problem while installing any application/package just
goolge for your question.

Now its your turn to do some self study .

1. Use Google
2. Read installed docs from ubuntu system
3. http://start.ubuntu.com/8.04/
4. Just play with Synaptic.
