I have been waiting for a distro that has support for the Eee built in and while I was on vacation, Mandriva 2008.1 came out with official support. So I installed 2008.1 on my 16GB SDHC class 6 Patriot card from my USB dvd-rom drive.
Had issues making partitions in manual ... ended up with 4GB ext3 Partition 1 for / and balance partition 5 ext3 for /home. I did not use swap since I have 1GB of ram.
On 1st boot it went to the terminal so I held the power button and rebooted OK into gnome desktop.
Had the low battery warning the first time but clicked on do not show message again and it's gone.
It also installs the wireless on 1st boot.
Installed the samba client to have access to my windows network.
Takes longer to boot then original OS however but it really looks great !
If a Minteee version was available, it would be very good promotion for Linux Mint.
Many thousand Eee's on the market looking for a distro ...
