    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    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_Download

    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.

    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
