Laughing my butt off cuz this


looks like my

which I did this

on one

and this

on the other. Ram can bumped to 2 gig on those netbooks. At least mine are capable of that.

If Debian. On 512MB of ram.Semplice with Openbox. Might be the ticket. My Salix install is probably over your head. Semplice installer to whole disc is pretty brainless and easy peasy for the clueless.
