Don't do it! LL for the Aspire One is based on Fedora 8 which was EOL'd 3+ years ago. Any modern distro should work just fine on the AA1 - I currently multiboot Fedora (15, 16, and what will be 17) and Ubuntu (11.04 and 11.10).

If you're going to ignore this advice,I keep a copy of LL for the AOA110 and AOA150 models at http://deli.no-ip.org/aa1 you can download. Use gunzip to uncompress the image, then use dd to transfer it to a 4GB or larger USB flash drive. Boot the AA1 from the flash drive and follow the instructions.

Please have a look at the Linpus Lite site. The last stable version is 1.7-lite and was released in March 2012. So there should be no problem installing that.

Don't do that either! Linpus is a terrible distro:

That's great they have a new release, nevertheless Linpus has a terrible reputation (use the forum Search feature and you'll find many frustrated users).

I highly recommend installing a distro from this Top 10 list: http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=major

Using a major distro means a larger user community, more developers, better support, better documentation, more software available, etc.

FWIW, when I tried a newer version of LL than that which was used on the AOA line of Aspire Ones, it wouldn't work properly. OP didn't mention which model he has; it may make a difference (but I still wouldn't recommend it).

On an AOA110l, Crunchbang works excellently. (should be the same on AOA150)
Any Distro based on Lxde should also work well. On other models things may differ.
Note: upgrading the bios is a good idea if you want the SD card slots to work at all.
The Original Acer version of Linpus Lite was so heavily locked down that they expected their customers to pay extra for Frozen Bubbles!
The downloadable version never worked properly either for me!
