I've done a few different draft images for the Asus EeePC model 900 that can be
put on a USB pen drive then booted and optionally installed. I used
livecd-tools to build them.
Gnome Image (600M):
Text only (199M):
Minimal GUI openbox (300M):
I've done a number of other images floating around as well, and I have a super
rad one waiting in the wings hahaha.
These are based on BLAG 90k which is based on Fedora 9. The kernel (-libre +
-rt) supports all hardware on the EeePC 701/900 using *only* free software.
This includes wifi with the ath5k driver. It is based on -libre and -rt plus
various other patches.
If you are interested in this I can keep you updated when I do new images (like
every few days right now).
