Running on a command line 
   $> tex --version
you get the old version, then possibly the new TeX Live binary directory
isn't in your path.

Assuming a default custom installation (no .deb packages) of texlive 2008,
the directory of the binaries must be added to the search path.
In Ubuntu the default should be 

PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2008/bin/i386-linux:$PATH; export PATH 
MANPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf/doc/man:$MANPATH; export MANPATH 
INFOPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf/doc/info:$INFOPATH; export INFOPATH

these lines or the relevant ones in your system are added in your
.bashrc (or .profile) file in your HOME directory.

Then reconfigure LyX and try again.

I hope this is a help
