Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I really doubt the slack13 kernel (188.8.131.52) is too old. I've got it installed no problem on my eee pc 1000h. I'm not familiar with the 1101ha, but h means it has a sata conventional disk I believe. Is that right?
I can't think why fdisk -l would show nothing. I had to go into the bios and turn off various boot acceleration options to get some distros to boot up. Might be worth trying that.
If you've got a spare usb stick then I'd recommend creating a bootstick as per the instructions (from alienbob) in usb-and-pxe-installers/README_USB.TXT on the install DVD/CD.
carlitoco, what exactly happens when you run fdisk or cfdisk? Are there error messages? If so, can you post them? Also, can you post the relevant lines of output from lspci that correspond to your hard disk controller please?
This article is brilliant: "Installing Slackware Linux On Asus EEE Netbooks" http://wooush.com/node/3. But of course you need to understand what you are doing. So read it few times before you actually do something.
