Ubuntu doesn't offer a Live CD for UNR, obviously for some reasons like, most netbooks don't have optical drives, etc. but you can have a copy of the .IMG (image/installation file) by downloading from here: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download-netbook.

The instructions... are also there in the page. Check this out: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromImgFiles

Ordinary Ubuntu can be used on netbooks, and the "netbook launcher" interface can be downloaded and installed on regular Ubuntu.
