    Shoot off to moblin.org and grab Moblin instead - it's a million times better than the Linpus distro and it installs perfectly on the Aspire ONE.

    i will have a look at it as soon as i can clone the 8gb ssd in it has anyone cloned one of these with clonezilla or ghost

    i would like to have a crack at running win xp on some time i know it will be slow but it would be a nice exercise.

    I'm not sure where my disk is (and I have a rather poor net connection so uploading it somewhere would be a PITA too)... sorry!

    EDIT - BTW Moblin runs as a Live distro so you can give it a try before commiting to it.
