Well, the version number 8.04.1 was the version number of the Ubuntu JeOS.
Very similar to the Ubuntu Server but with a optimized kernel for VmWare.
see the link here.
well i searched the repositories, but could not find anything for a few days. so i thought that it has to be installed using the tar.gz file.
thanks for pointing out that is there in the repos.
Well i am actually waiting for the Debian Lenny release. Once my testing on VmWare is over. My plan is to use real machines. And definitely it will be Lenny.
(That's not an existing version number.)

In Ubuntu 8.10, this gives you Open MPI 1.2.7. In Ubuntu 8.4, you're at a
slightly older version so I suggest upgrading.
In case you really want 1.2.8, by far the easiest way (and also most general)
is to just grab the Debian source from 'Debian unstable' and rebuild on your
system to match your libraries. That can be quasi-automated, see 'apt-get
source' and use google as this is getting off-topic for this list.
Hope this helps,
