I assume you mean how to replace the kernel of gOS (based on Ubuntu
8.04) with the kernel of Ubuntu 8.10.
That doesn't seem to be possible, at least not without expert
knowledge and a lot of time.
The new kernel probably will break a lot of stuff, and if you try to
do the classic upgrade that is possible with Ubuntu you will probably
end up with a broken system.
gOS is build on top of a "long term stable" version, and it seems that
is done for a reason.

Please note that I had to take the gos theme off of the GOS cd and
place it on my system cause it (theme) got broke apart in the jaunty
9.04 upgrade.

BE warned, if you use a usb network device to get on the internet,
9.04 is a hoot to get them working. Stay at 8.10. I am going to go
back to it.
