As I wanted to install Cloudera Hadoop, and I got the following message:

Click this link for your Red Hat/CentOS 5 system, or on this other link for your Red Hat 6 system, choose Save File, and save it to a directory to which you have write access (it can be your home directory).

It says for Red Hat/CentOS 5 system and for Red Hat 6 system use this file, but which one is for me, as I am using Ubuntu 8.04?

which will be of 8.04 squeeze or lenny ? – Rahul Mehta Aug 31 '11 at 7:13
Neither. Have you even looked at Ubuntu's website? The answer is right there. – user3463 Aug 31 '11 at 7:15
8.04 is Hardy Heron. I found this by typing "Ubuntu 8.04" in Google and clicking on the first link: squeeze and lenny are Debian releases. Ubuntu is based on Debian, but you're a little confused, I think. – user3463 Aug 31 '11 at 7:42
