I am really new to linux. I am running Mac os X and have been for more than 10 years, but I decided that I wanna play around with Linux. I ordered an Asus Eee 901 and I wanna change the version of Linux on it. I was thinking of running Ubuntu-eee because it was easy but I really fell in love with Linux Mint.
Ok my question is will Linux Mit run on my Eee 901 without problems? I read about installing ubuntu 8.10 (instead of 8.04.1 which is ubuntu-eee) and apparently there are kernel's specific for Asus Eee. Can I install them with Mint running? And will I have to in order to have everything like webcame working?
Hope these questions are not to silly. I also need someone to recommend a book on Linux that is good to start with.
