Eee pc fundamentals

I was given an eee pc that was completely wiped before I received it. I'm new to Linux, and I really need help. I'm missing all the fundamentals, I can't download anything, I don't have skype or anything that comes with the eee. Is there I way that I could pretty much buy the package of fundamentals that comes with a new eee 4gb surf somewhere? I'm going to need to get an external cd drive to get it on there though because I can't download anything. I'm not even sure that is possible, so if anyone has any other suggestions I appreciate the help,

P.S. I just want to be able to use my eee, the machine is in good condition!

Instead of Ubuntu Netbook Remix I suggest you have a look at the very nice Eeebuntu project. They are scheduled to release their Ubuntu 9.04 based "3.0" release today.
