Thank you guys. I installed a 2GB stick of RAM and installed WinXP SP3, with all my apps installed on an SDHC card. (that's a lot of installing! :P)

Anyways, the Wifi fixed itself. I'm pretty much good but there's one little problem. The OS can't detect my battery, thus claims it is 100% charged at all times. The netbook still runs off the battery, but there is no way I can see the current charge. Help!

Try a newer BIOS, they've improved the battery reading a couple times. Unless you want to use a bigger non OEM battery there's really no reason not to use the latest.

And you can find links to the latest drivers for Windows 7 here
