It’s better to go after 9.10 or 10.04 since Opscode builds chef ubuntu
packages for this distributions which makes chef-server easier to
start. For chef 0.8 this packages are still on testing so they are not
reliable 100%, but you might want to give them a try.
Also there’s no couchdb packages for 8.04 so you have to compile
erlang & couchdb from scratch.
Regarding to clients there’s no problem at all with going with 8.04,
many people are running sucessfully chef-client in 8.04 since all you
have to install is a couple of gems.
Hope this helps.

For a couple projects, I’ve been using Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. I know a few
months ago, there were problems (regarding couchdb, I believe) getting
all the dependencies for chef-server and client going.
Is there any tricky about getting the latest chef server and clients
going on Ubuntu hardy?
