Hi Jacob,

Check out Chapter 2.11 in our Support FAQ which is all about upgrading & 
clean installing to more recent and better software:
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Support_FAQ

In short, these days we generally recommend Release 8.2.1 (Build 802) 
from Spring 2009:

Certain people prefer Release 8.2.0 (Build 767) from Autumn 2008 which 
sometimes offers more reliable wireless:

Finally if you can help kids worldwide testing the very latest, please 
backup all your files then definitely try:
