Go to Ubuntu.com and download 10.04 netbook remix. Then you will need to install it on a USB flash drive and install it on your computer. You can use the usb creator utility on Ubuntu. Because dell chose to customize 8.04 they created there own distro that cannot be updated the normal way.

Unfortunately, the latest versions of Ubuntu require you to manually install the drivers for Broadcom wireless cards (which is what I think you have in your 10v). The easiest way to get the necessary drivers working is: connect to the Internet via an cable, then run in a terminal:
sudo aptitude update sudo aptitude install bcmwl-kernel-source
