Should have been a little clearer in my original post. Bear with me please, as i'm typing this off my phone.
a 1000HE that would dual boot XP and Eeebuntu. I did this by partitioning and installing Eeebuntu on the D: drive, which essentially erased the restore capabilities of the laptop.
This laptop had to go back to Amazon due to my keyboard keys popping off a week after I got the darn thing.
So I got the replacement 1000HE, which DOESN'T have anything other than the factory install of XP on it. I'm trying to figure out how I can install Eeebuntu on the laptop without having to erase the D: drive and restore information stored on it.
I imagine that I could essentially partition part of my C: drive and install Eeebuntu on it from there, but I didn't know what exactly I was doing DURING the install on a particular page that included installation/partition/format selections. I might be able to run through the install later today and post up a screen shot of what I'm talking about.
Everything else is fine. When I said "I don't know anything it says," I was literally referring to that installation page of Eeebuntu. Otherwise, I'm no noob at computers. Heheh, cheers.
I will definitely read the documents you guys posted once I'm home.
