I've got it installed on one of the 900a's from Target - it's a tight
fit with the 4GB drive, but it's there. One weird quirk was that I got
partitioning errors during the install if I had anything but the
original 512MB stick of RAM in it, Fedora WOULD NOT install with the
2GB stick I got for it in. I could get the eee spin of Ubuntu to
install (even if the grub.conf was crack, it insists on telling it to
boot from the wrong drive), and I could get the eee restore disk to
work with 2GB of RAM, but not Fedora. Other than that I've got it
pared down to pretty much the basics of what I want and it's got about
400MB left. I'm using the LXDE window manager and I like it enough
that I'm using it on the bigtop also, it's rather like a prettier
version of KDE3 and minus the futzing with the panels that I was doing
with Gnome and XFCE to make it behave how I wanted it to. But it runs
FireFox, Logjam, Twitux, and Pidgin, plays Flash and mp3s, and Abiword
doesn't hog too much room, so if I actually was using it as something
other than a web terminal it'd be there.
