    heya!
    i've had my asus eee pc for like over a year now but i still haven't really got to grips with it. I'm still VERY confused about things like, Debian, Ubuntu, Mandriva etc... i don't understand what that is all about and how can i tell which one i'm on?
    There are also more things i'd like to know and understand but i'll start on that one atm =]

    Welcome to the forums!

    Check the link in my signature for lots of good information on getting started with Linux.

    You can get some quick and easy lessons for using the command line under Linux here:

    LinuxCommand.org: Learn the Linux command line. Write shell scripts.

    You might be able to determine what your distribution is by running the following command:

    Code:
    cat /etc/*-release
    I'd also recommend checking your computer maker's website for additional information about your computer and exact model.

    Hope you have fun with Linux.

    According to Wikipedia the Eee PC has Xandros or Windoze XP.

    I believe it also comes with Linpus, is that right or am I thinking of another Netbook?
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    The Acer Aspire One comes with Linpus. Although a shop near me has claimed to sell the Eee PC with Linpus (after a quick look it turned out to be Linpus by the way).
