I've installed the ubuntu 9.10 netbook and all is well except the false battery reading and it doesn't see any external HDD (fat32).
I know the hardware is fine,but since I install this no joy on the HDD.
Any ideas of fix?

I did have a similar issue, also the alacarte menu was stuffed up.

I have just recently done a complete reinstall from a usb stick with the netbook remix and everything is working. It evens see's my 1TB external Maxtor drive.

So it might be a reinstall to solve, you might also try having it attached during the boot/install process.

Have you had any luck or is it still not seeing the external drive?

I did re-installed it and it worked,but after the updating the software it stopped working!
I'm lost on this the FAT32 HDD works fine on windows or mac osx.
Also, I've checked the netbook with another usbpen and it worked!
