Well either way, it fixed it. I have a coworker with the exact problem I am having. I am going to reformat using the FAT32 for her as well. I do take my "common knowledge" comment back. I really didn't "think" when I posted that. I sometimes expect others to know some things. Below is where I found the solution to change to FAT32 if you are interested. Thank you Steve for your generous help.
There are some problems with Dell mini 9. I've found solutions for them here.
1. A freezing phenomenon
Because dell mini 9 uses SSD, whose writting performance is really awful although access time and reading time is simply great, you might experience so-called freezing phenomenon. You can easily overcome this problem by changing NTFS to FAT32 with 32kb of cluster size. (But you have to reformat SSD) You can thereby get rid of most freezing things, not everything.
2. Changing resolution
When you turn on the netbook, you might experience converting resolution from 800x600 to 1024x600 with starting windows XP. This annoys some people who use Objectdock or Desktop. Changing resolution will rearrange your icons on the desktop. Try a program named Astray. Just install, excute and uninstaill it. Don't touch anything. By just excuting this program, the problem will be fixed.
3. A gap
Although mini 9 is really nicely assembled, some of sensitive people have felt a gap between a bettery and a body, which causes a noise and battery moving. The following blog shows how to take care of the problem. You need to use a sticky tape, the writter recommends a alumimium tape, on the projection.

4. Noise from earphones
When you are using earphones, a noise is really really bothering you. Dell says this is because of a highly developed battery management system. You can easily eliminate the noise by muting a beep sound. Click right moust button on Volume control on your taskbar, add beep volume and mute it. (I dont have mini 9 with me at the moment. I dont remember the exact procedure.)
If you feel that this is helpful for you, make any feedback for me. Thanks.
For those people who need F11 or F12, you can get them by using key mapping program, such as keytweak (go google it). For example, you can define Caps Lock, which I dont really frequently use, as F11.
