I just got one the other day . . Is there a way to install a version of a messenger program that is similar to msn, with the ability to use the webcam ? And if youdecide to install XP on it, how do you do that and if you want to go back to linux later how do you do that also ?

Hey hon, I just looked it up, you can either wipe the drive and install XP or create a dual boot. Both the linux and the windows machine are identical so you should have no problem in putting xp on it. dual boot sounds more like what you want so you do not lose your linux

you would have to partition your hard drive for the windows side, this is not hard to do at all, you just need your XP CD and you do it from there. Partition format the partition that XP is going to go on and install, really not a big deal at all.

How big is the hard drive? Do you have a CD drive? I saw the poster underneath me. What I looked at had bigger hard drives and had everything you needed

Problems of eepc are: - 4gb of HD solid state, - don't have cd/dvd reader For msn client try to install amsn or mercury, they are two msn clients that support webcam. For install windows i think is very hard because you can haven't enough space for install it.
