Reinstalling ASUS Eee PC Linux

This post is for the Googlers of the future.

I’ve been fiddling with an ASUS Eee PC (701SDX) that originally came with Linux (Eee’s Xandros variant), but had had a different OS installed over the top of it.

In the end, the steps I followed were based on one of the posts on Metafilter.
