Acer aspire one reformat


I have recently tried installing firefox 3 on my acer aspire one (linpus lite) and being a novice with linux have managed to mess it up. I now cant get to the home section or do anything whereas the mouse and desktop items like wireless all work, i cannot right click either.

I am wondering if it is possible for me to reformat or to restore previous working order any way possible. The acer apsire one has no cd drive which has left me stranded. Any help at all would be greatly apreciated.

You can do a fresh install from USB or do a network install

See www.pendrivelinux.com

You can get fresh images of Ubuntu for your acer one too (see www.linuxtracker.org)

It's too late now, but in future, if you had a decent backup of the system, you could always restore it should you experience problems like this. I use ...
