I have an Eee PC 900 and I'm pretty happy with it. NetBSD 5.0 is
supported (except you need to apply a patch for ath(4)), lii(4),
uvideo(4), SD reader and so on work without any problem.

If you'd like to use Fn + F2 (to turn on and off the wireless card) you
need this patch too:

The only problems with it IMO are: the SSD performance and suspend to
ram problems (if and only if I'm using lii(4)).

There are various interesting pages that probably will help you and if
you can please add informations there:

and about installation (using USB stick):


However, AFAIK Eee PC 901 and 1000* wireless devices (ral(4) IIRC)
aren't supported (but I'm not completely sure, the former page list
them as supported the wiki article that provides a dmesg clearly list
them as not supported (yet)).

BTW, good luck Elric!
