lawless install - wireless works, even when the install “appeared” to fail. reformatted and reinstalled, driver reinstalled properly.

running
1. macbuntu 10.10 - the best for new users
2. ubuntu 10.10 - with elementary + clutterview - the best pure ubuntu experience

flawless install - wireless works, even when the install “appeared” to fail. reformatted and reinstalled, driver reinstalled properly.

far faster than on windows XP. google ” tune your swappiness ” for an even snappier experience. with 1 or 2gb of ram, swappiness of around 10-20 works great. even using my factory spec hdd drive, not ssd

I have had doubts about installing Linux on my HP Mini, but now Im 110% convinced it is the best way to go. Im posting this on my newly installed mandriva 2009 DVD Installed on my 8Gb SDHC running PERFECTLY! So fast I dont even know what to. I took the time to post this cause I looked for a long time for this and had no luck with anyone that wanted to do what I did, and since these atom powered netbooks are somewhat a new trend not everyone is willing to risk breaking it 2 weeks after purchase ( or so was my fear) I did it with an external DVD Drive connect to the USB port thats right next to the power cord slot. That is the only way to see the boot into DVD option in your Bios. If you try it on your right side one it wont work. Booted mandriva installer, chose the use entire disk option. And the the memory previously installed just chose the 7.5Gb disk that was my SDHC card and PRESTO! worked like a charm. once inside Mandriva, went into networking (with the DVD still inside and installed my wireless drivers through NDIS Wrapper. Quickly enough I was writing up this post paying my respects to the GENUISUS that came up with mandriva AND Compiz Fusion! Beautiful! Hope this lets other people loking to clear theyre doubts and take the leap! Good Evening
