Thanks for the distrowatch link. I read that over and decided to try Ubuntu. HOWEVER! it needs 4.4 gig to install and my little EeePC only has 2 gig.

Are they talking about RAM size or hard drive space? (I do not know.) I have a version of Ubuntu that fits just fine on a single cd-rom that surely holds less than one GBytes.

Jean,

Ooops, meant to type that I only have 4 gig solid state drive.

I was very surprised to see that it required 4.4 Gigs, and disappointed.

Oh well, I have Puppy installed on the solid state drive now and will see how that goes. I am still confused about the file organization. Took me forever to find the drive under the /mnt directory. I definitely have a steep learning curve ahead of me.
