Hi, your post is a little unclear. Is your netbook currently running Windows CE and you want to install Linux to it?

I believe there is an Android port for that model referred to in This YouTube clip. However, I can't be certain it's for the same model or that this will work for you.

If you want to try Android, I recommend you try the sister site

If you specifically want Linux, You might find getting a running system a little more complicated. (that is to say, "not recommended for newbies")

Sounds like an interesting challenge though!
