Indeed I did get a working bootable OS on my flash drive. Learned a bit about GUI and CLI and some package management and stuff. I got ready to install the new OS partitioned the SSD continued on 76% came along and NO MORE DISK SPACE. SH!T I said to my self. Oh well at least I can still boot from my USB device.

What OS are you installing? (Ex. Ubuntu Netbook Remix?) What platform are you installing on? I had issues installing on an ASUS eeepc 700 netbook. There were two internal flash drives / (partions?). One 4Gb and one 8Gb. The primary drive was the 4Gb? I had to make adjustments to the BIOS to get it to boot from the larger drive.

As previously stated, the OP is using an ASUS 2G surf:

This has a somewhat limited 2GB SSD, but does have a built in SD card reader, which can use SDHC media (I have used a 4GB SDHC card in mine), or the option to boot from a USB stick.

I am booting Kubuntu from USB. I still have no OS on my machine. It works well but I want a larger USB device or perhaps an SDHC card. Whichever i get a larger discount on at work.
