Default Howto install and run Ubuntu on the Eee PC

The Eee lacks an optical drive, so I had to use the SD slot in order to perform the installation. This is the trickiest part of process, but it is significantly simplified by UNetbootin, a user-friendly tool for putting ISO images onto flash media. I started by downloading the latest Ubuntu Eee installation image from the project's web site and also their custom build of UNetbootin.

The next step is using an Ubuntu desktop computer to prepare the SD card so that it can be used for installation on the Eee. This is where I ran into trouble and I had to try a few times before I got it to work right. I used the dd command to fix the SD card's MBR (substitute the bracketed text with the correct path to your SD device):
