Compiled and tested by Bryan A. Hussey
As of this date, 12NOV2010, I am beginning a full wipe and install of the Asus 1005HAB Eee PC. So far, using Mandriva One Spring 2010 Edition and the KDE 4 kernal, I haven't gotten far due to the battery issues that I have had OOB. I'm running a Live CD from a bootable flash drive, which has gotten the Live off the drive environment working fairly well. I will continue updating this page as I go along, awaiting the next charger for the laptop, so may take three to four days.
For full specifications see the Asus Eee PC 1005HA specifications page.
