Welcome to linux, and LQ

The linux distribution that comes with the eee is / was Xandros.

Many people think that Xandros is seriously "broken", but your hardware is good, and works well with linux. I have an original eee701 but I have ubuntu 8.10 installed on it, and everything works. 8.10 is of date now, try 10.04, which is current.

See here for more help:

I may be able to help you and I live in staffordshire (Burton). I'm not amazingly knowledgeable but I get by, just can't work out how to send you my email privately with this website - just registered here!

not really confidence inspiring is it?
