I just picked up one of these at Target, for $299.99 USD. I'm making my first post with it. The system specs are:
Intel Celeron M CPU 900MHz
4GB hard drive
Linux OS (Xandros?)
Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
I have already modified it so that it has a KDE desktop. The problem that I have is that it defaults to the original desktop. I have to select the logoff button, and then select the 'Full Desktop' button before I get the KDE desktop.
Does anyone know a way to make it start the KDE desktop by default?Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.

Go to 'Settings' and 'Personalisation'. Find 'Login Mode' and select 'Full Desktop Mode', which should be there if you have kde kicker installed.
This isn't how I did it, btw (it's not so straightforward to do the full desktop stuff on the 901). I did it by installing Fedora 9 on an 8GB SDHC memory card, and now I can choose Gnome or KDE.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/

Thanks, but I already got it working. I forgot that I even posted about it.
I basically followed the instructions found here:
I don't recall having to add any repositories first, but I may have. Then I opened a terminal with the Ctrl+Alt+T keys. To get root privileges I used this command:
URI: http://xnv4.xandros.com/4.0/pkg/ Distribution: xandros4.0-xn Section(s): main contrib non-free
To get it to boot into the KDE desktop, I followed these instructions:
I created a hidden file in my home directory named .xinitrc containing this.
