Aloha Gary,

Agree that that any Ubunto OS is bad on notebooks. I have an HP Mini 
1000 that I have network issues with because Ubunto barfs up any static 
network settings.

HP Tech Support gave me advice to replace it with FreeBSD 7.2. Try it 
from a flash drive first to test everything then replace the Ubunto.

I hear some people on the list have FreeBSD on Asus Eee net books and it 
is working well.
