Thats the one that is default installed on the eee, correct? I honestly never booted the version of Xandros that came w/ eee, but will verify what the other poster said, ubuntu-eee will recognize the wireless out of the box(currently, its version 8.04) I know w/ the "normal" Ubuntu 8.10, all you have to do is install the restricted extras, restart, and you have wireless.
Have you checked in at the eee user forums?
Weird, I've not heard this problem w/ Xandros.
