in last issue (September -LXF 109) Mike Saunders covers few distros for the Asus Eee replacement of the Xandros original distro.
Mandriva seems a good distribution for the Eee but Mike mentions the CD support only. However Mandriva is also available via an USB key (see www.mandriva.com
) called 'Mandriva Flash 2008 Spring'.
Can this USB key be used to boot the Eee (and so avoiding need of external CD drive) in a live mode and install if wanted ?
