    Would like to get hold of one these but there is no way my school would spring even for the lower spec one as they could not even comprehend how to use them efftectively.

    I think there is an 8Gb one available as well (not sure about UK at the moment) which is windows compatible and Asus are looking to sell these PCs with windows pre-loaded.

    Re: RM Asus Laptop

    I have no choice then

    Come across this forum:

    http://forum.eeeuser.com/index.php

    Has lots of helpful hints and tips.

    Apparently the file needed is in:

    /opt/xandros/share/AsusLauncher/

    and is called:

    simpeui.rc.

    I will have a play, but HTH

    We have succesfully used Dav Explorer in Linux to connect to Easylink. If you can install that on there somehow then you should be fine.

    Doubt the version of Linux on there has it but we have noticed that recent versions of Ubuntu can connect to Web Dav folders as drives, similar to how Macs do it. Not sure off the top of my head where to go though.

    You can also purchase them from Misco, BT and laptopsdirect.co.uk.
    BT offer an option half price Symantec Norton 360 (err why) and the price from laptopsdirect is way over the odds.
