Hit "upgrade" in iTunes. It'll take it to 3.1.3.
I'll find you a guide that has download links as well for all the files you need to get it jailbroken and unlocked again.
iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your iPhone 2G on OS 3.1.3 Using RedSn0w (Windows)
there you go.
Edit: skip to step 4 once you've finished upgrading to 3.1.3.

iPhone 2G uses bootneuter, it doesn't work with ultrasn0w to unlock bc of the baseband version.
Redsn0w should be used bc it jailbreaks and unlocks in one step.

Use Redsnow 0.9.6B4 with BIN Files bl36 and bl46. This should unlock and jailbreak at the same time once you updated or restore to 3.1.3!
