"Immediately after turning on the eeepc, press Esc button a few times until a boot menu comes up. You should see a list with your cd drive listed. Select it and hit enter.

"After cd boots up, select language then select command line install. The installation after this point will be pretty straight forward, asking you the usual questions and requiring you to add a user name and password.

"When you get to the part about partitioning the drive, you basically have 2 choices: Guided-use entire disk and manual. If you choose entire disk, be aware it will use more swap space than doing manual partitioning and you will be left with about 300mb of free space after the install is completely finished. If you choose manual, i recommend using about 128mb of swap space."
