This is more of a Linux/Ubuntu question than an Erlang question.
In any case, Erlang IS available for Gutsy Gibbon (aka Ubuntu 7.10), as 
you can see here:

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/interpreters/erlang

How to get it?

First, ensure that the universe repository for gutsy is in your 
/etc/apt/sources.list.

If is not already there, add this:

    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu gutsy universe

then run (as a root, from the terminal), apt-get update

Secondo, you can get erlang, simply typing (again, as a root, from the 
terminal)

    apt-get install erlang

That's it.
