This page has a link to download the aspire one image.  http://eeepc.itrunsonlinux.com/the-news/249-acer-aspire-one-linpus-linux-lite-recovery-dvd-online

I've also read that Sidux works on the aspire one.  It supposedly supports all the hardware, whereas Ubuntu 8.10 doesn't support either sound or the webcam (I can't remember which).
