Hi there, the Qualcomm install kernel should work with the EEEPC (Link). Please refer to the post on how to update your install USB.

Hmm, linked kernel didn't work, lan is not recognized, looks I'm out of luck with that old netbook...thanks for your time agent

Huh Looks like I've picked the wrong network driver. Do you have a Ubuntu Live CD? If yes, can you boot that up, and then go into shell and run the following?
Code:
sudo cat /proc/modules

This command should tell me what network module is required for your 901.

Hmm. Not immediately obvious which module is the network driver. can you run?
Code:
dmesg|grep eth


Edit: I think it's the ATL1E. It's almost bedtime for me today.. :P I'd build a new kernel for you tomorrow when I'm less tired..

Hiya. Is there a bug in the forum software, or something else? Huh

Don't think I see your message in the post.

Anyway, try the ATL1/ATL1E kernel now and see if it works (Link).
