Anyway, I am lucky enough to have a USB DVD drive, otherwise the process is a little more complicated, with the need to transfer the Windows CD to a USB drive and install slightly differently.This tutorial isn’t a guide how to install, but how to make it fit comfortably under 4 GB.Perhaps this: Chromium OS: got a Wiki article: Eee PCI would try arch or archbang.Ubuntu is just too slow for anything worse than c2d these days. Just set it up and tell her what the shortcuts are.
I ensured all hardware was working, and installed any drivers it needed – which were for the ethernet port, the built in Wi Fi and the graphics chip. Once all the updates were installed, MS Security Essentials was updated and ran its first scan, and with all apps installed and updated, I was left with just under 1 GB free space.
It'd be interesting to see if Ubuntu Netbook is even compatible with 800x480 screens.
FWIW the Shortbread had a news item a couple days ago that 10.04's netbook version just went out of support; must not be wanting to do LTS for netbooks yet.
I also used with with Win2k for a while and it was not bad.
While my passion is for Macs, the rest of my household prefer Windows. It featured the Celeron 900 MHz processor underclocked to 630 MHz, and I put 2 GB RAM in it.
