wow sorry everyone, i have been so busy lately, well the good news is, it just works. its brilliant and thanks for the link on the wireless (truth be known i am no Linux guru so i gave the pc to a mate in a linux club with the URL and he got it running)
apart from a small gripe with the screen resolution and having to drag windows that don't quite fit, it perfect.
i did have to stop using the tasty menu but as it scrolled a little to far across its tiny screen, so i just used the standard menu.
i love it on the train for video play back its great and i upgraded the ram as well.
highly recommend one of these little machines if your after a travel companion and a light laptop solution.
take care all
