Response to Yes, Thian, that is correct. (more)
about partitioning etc. but never dared to try for fear of screwing things up.
Now I have the little 8.9 ASUS Eee with XP loaded and the Linux recovery disK for it.
But I thought I could run ubuntu from the external CD for fun and testing. I can hook my internet connection now to the little ASUS and it all works fine , running Xp with 1 gig of memory and 40 gigs of harddrive. I can run DVD movies on it too. I just set up Skype on the ASUS too and enabled the builtin 1.3 webcam which works....
Thanks for explaining that changing the bios boot order will not screw things up.
I would ultimately like to have a usb flash loaded with Eeeubuntu or clones updated versions which I have read which are improved but not created by Linux itself for the Eee XP model....
I know there are directions on how to load a usb flash stick but I hesitate cuz I feel I might screw it up haha!
So I opted to reorder ubunto cd free again and give it a try.....so I can now go into the bios of the ASUS and change the boot order, as you directed.
My point is: Now I have minimal needs for a computer so Linux seems a good option instead of always relying on bloated XP. I wish ASUS would sell preloaded usb flash drives for sale! haha!
Appreciate your knowledge! thanks!
