Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate the time and effort you took to help me out. So basically, if I understand what you posted correctly, that Fedora will work but that it is plagued with too many problems to be able to install correctly with everything working. I also understand that Ubuntu, which I know Dell ships with its netbooks, also doesn't quite work as well as it should and that when updates are released, they basically are unusable since they tend to crash the system and I'd have to wait till somone found a workaround for it.
Interesting...I would have thought that with the power that the 1010 has, it would be able to load most linux based OS's, guess I was wrong...
Anything other than Ubuntu/Fedora that anyone can get running with very little problems and can update?
It may sound impossible but my cousin really got me into trying linux and I was excited to try Fedora but with the problems you mentioned I might just be stuck with windows xp.
Thanks again for your reply, you really helped me out there.

From what I have read Win 7 also has good drivers for the 1010. fdalbor
