	I nearly lost my breakfast looking at Xandros; Windows in drag -- 
and, of course, in cahoots with MegaSleazo. *Lots* of alternatives are 
better, especially on one with that much space.

	Wifi troubles vary, in all sorts of ways. But for the most 
overview, go to http://forum.eeeuser.com/ and look around. (There is even 
(or was) something called EeeDora -- F8 specifically adapted to the early 
small EeePCs; F9 may have made it obsolete already.)

	The forums there are often somewhat disorganized, and hard to 
find things in; but they're *very* prolific.

	Suggestion : put Fedora, Puppy, and two or three others on 
bootable USB sticks, and try them without having to go through a whole 
install between each. I carry two or three such with mine; I think lots 
of people do.
