According to Asus, this system supports both Windows and Linux operating systems. I would suggest that you first update the BIOS, and then look at the Linux tools/drivers for download. Since this system doesn't have a CD/DVD drive, I can only think that the BIOS is causing this problem. For example, Unetbootin should not care if a CD/DVD drive is installed on the system, although debian may be more picky.
Anyway, here is the relevant Asus XP support link: http://www.asus.com/supportonly/Eee_...pport_Download
Or here (Linux support link): http://www.asus.com/supportonly/Eee_...pport_DownloadSometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

It's been a while but if I remember correctly, there is an option to let the installer know where the CD / DVD is. Point the installer to your USB drive.What do we want?
When do we want 'em?
Doesn't really matter does it!?
