    Personally, I'd wait for "Windows 7" to be released as they are doing a "Netbook" version especially designed for netbooks!

    Look at the thread for the Asda Aspire One. There are some useful links in there.

    Like a windows 7 lite?

    I have done this on my acer aspire one.
    Easiest way is to get hold of an external cd/dvd player and plug that in via usb.
    Or you can look at this guide - uk.youtube.com/wat…llY
    If you are going to do it this way then buy a NEW pendrive - I tried with my one but there were too many bad sectors (same with my mates used one), so Windows would not install.
    Hope this helps

    How do you go about it with the external cd/dvd drive?

    you just plug it in and its like a normal xp installation, the acer's bios is set up to automatically boot from an external usb cd/dvd drive
