I got one last week.  It came with 4 partitions on the drive and Windows
XP.  The two main partitions (80GB and 60GB) were both NTFS - where the
60GB partition was basically an empty D: drive.

I just stole that for linux - deleted it and created it as a Linux
partition and ran the eeepc installer and now I'm dual booting with
GRUB all automatically set up by the installer.

Great job guys!!

I also buy PCs by battery life first... and this 1000HE is replacing a 5
yr old Toshiba I've been lugging around.  I'm still setting up linux on
the Eee PC -- I'm still running the 2.6.26 kernel (with no wireless
support) ATM - upgrading to 2.6.29 from the wiki backport mentioned in
other emails is on my todo list.

Just reporting in that I really like this 1000HE and now that it has
linux on it it's actually useful for me :).  Now my wife wants one too -
but they haven't released the pink versions yet ;)
