Hi mamacrazy,

Ok so you have a ASUS EEEPC and you're using the Linux OS that came bundled with it. I'm going to answer your questions, let's start with the first one:

1.) There is a equivalent application for Windows Explorer in the Linux OS in the EEEPC it's called "File Manager" and you can find it under the WORK tab. It should open a window similar to windows explorer.

To answer the second question:

2.) So you created a document and you need to save it. Choose FILE menu select SAVE AS then on the window that pops up on the left choose the icon that looks like a house named "MY HOME" then on the right it should show the different locations available including your USB flash drive. The office application installed in the EEEPC is called OPENOFFICE, so you can actually visit their website to get support and more information about the application.

To get a copy of the manual just goto this link:

Pick the lanaguage of the manual you need, and download it and read the manual for more details on how to use the PC.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
