i wouldn't recommend this manual approach of installing packages, because you 
will end up in dependency purgatory if the desired package craves for other 
packages. you don't want to wget them all by hand...

as of ubuntu 7.10 (gutsy gibbon), all packages of the ubuntu studio project 
(http://ubuntustudio.org) are part of the ordinary ubuntu repos. so basically 
all it should take to install ardour on a running hardy system should be to

 sudo aptitude install ardour

on a console. there are metapackages like "ubuntustudio-audio" 
and "ubuntustudio-audio-plugins" if you want to install an "all you need" 
audio suite. the "linux-rt" package might be a good idea too, to get a kernel 
with real time support. so instead of the above, type

 sudo aptitude install ubuntustudio-audio ubuntustudio-audio-plugins linux-rt

and wait for the installation to finish.
