According to this page, Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy)can be upgraded only to 8.04 LTS (Hardy). Is there is a way I can upgrade it to latest version i.e., 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx).

You would have to make it a two step process.  Many of the people on the Ubuntu forums have recommended doing a fresh install even from 8.04 to 10.04.  Many have complained that the upgrade method corrupted their install so that it didn't work.  I've been putting off moving from 8.04 to 10.04 for exactly that reason.

On a separate hard disk.  Then transfer over your data from your original disk.

You should either take a backup of you disk, or do the install of the new system on a spare partition of your disk. If you don't have spare partitions, then you need a new disk, but it does not need to be a large one. Probably an old one from a machine that is about to be thrown away will do

@rgeers is right, it doesn't take a big disk.  I have Ubuntu 8.04 with Desktop and Server installs on a 40GB drive with over a dozen web sites and I'm only using 8.8GB.  10.04 isn't going to take much either.

On a different disk I hope, so you can tranfer you data.

Because it is not worth it to upgrade from Edgy. It is too old.
