    isn't there an easy way to restore the pc back to linux... when its booting?

    If your not used of Linux try leaving XP on it and use a USB stick with Linux on it to boot from.
    Here's a tutorial on making an Ubuntu bootable USB:
    pendrivelinux.com/200…ll/

    Then if you like it you could always wipe the eeepc and install Linux

    Here's the Ubuntu eeepc community page:
    help.ubuntu.com/com…ePC

    Hope it helps

    Linux is practically impossible to work.....especially on the ps3 or Eee PC..:whistling::p
    Kidding aside yellow dog linux is very user friendly and very speedy. :thumbsup:

    The Ubuntu pendrive install links above are somewhat out of date

    For a non persistent install ( meaning that no changes are saved ) see
    ]http//ww…er/

    For the persistent install ( meaning that any changes will be saved i.e. bookmarks , new app. installations etc.) see
    ]http//ww…cd/

    note that both of these methods mean that you can boot to ubuntu from a memory stick without effecting your Windows installation, so you can try it out and switch back to XP if you don't like it.
