I have switched my window manager to open box to save CPU cycles plus this is my default window manager. My only regret with Fedora is that I only have 843MB of disk space on the 4 GB SSD drive. I do have a 8 GB SDHC flash installed so I am not not hurting for space yet. The Fedora install has many more programs than the default Xandros OS like a C compiler. Plus I feel more comfortable with Fedora than Xandros. The unionFS crap was driving me crazy! As I get more comfortable with Fedora on the eeePC I am sure I can reduce its disk space footprint.
Fedora 9 operating system installed http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EeePc
2GB of RAM
8 GB SDHC Flash Card

I had to start the installation in text mode to get the customized package selection started. In graphic mode I could not find a button for this.
I did this to deselect gnome desktop and select kde desktop. switching from gnome to kde after installation is not easily done.

After installing the LAN and Wifi Driver Fedora 8 works great on the eeePC!
