    Have you tried Ubuntu NR (Netbook Remix)? There is also EasyPeasy. You could also try a mini install and build your system to suit your exact needs.

    yes i use eeebuntu, and not only is it peppy, but i can run virtualbox with window XP failry well
    There is an easy way, and a hard way to do things.
    If you're anything like me, you've tried to do things things the hard way,

    and broke something.......

    I love Puppy Linux - you can get a lot done with that distro!

    I also have an EeePC and am using Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) 9.04. It originally came with Windows XP but I installed the UNR about a year ago and have not looked back. If you are looking for something small and quick, I have to recommend Puppy Linux. It can be loaded on a flash drive and run entirely in a computers RAM.

    Xubuntu is for older computers, that might work.
