How to install Mandriva 2009 on an ASUS eeePC 1000HE

I purchased an ASUS eeePC 1000HE and plan to install Mandriva 2009 on it. Has anyone done this? I know sometimes there is special tweaking that has to be done of files for screen resolution or to get all the various items to work. Is there a wiki or any special instructions that has to be done for this type of install?

I just typed in google "asus eee pc mandriva" and found several links relating to this topic. Some successful, some have problems. Just try installing it and see what happens. Worst case it doesn't work and put an o/s on it that works.

I just looked at the Mandriva Linux 2009.1 (Spring) Release Tour. The Eee PC as well as most other Netbooks should be properly supported 'out of the box'. The Spring edition will release around the end of April.
