After the recent F9 reboot, I'm trying to tweak my Eee PC system again. Managed to install Opera browser (choose Debian Etch version). And I've just found a EeeUser page on tweaking for beginners. Perfect for newbie linux users like me. Will be installing VLC (as the existing Mplayer doesn't play MPEG4 files)
