The particular model of Asus is apparently pre-loaded with Xandros Linux operating system.
It appears that you are not familiar with Linux and hence the apprehension and feeling that a shift to XP would be easier.
Why not give Linux a try ? There are a good many websites out there which go through the basics of using a Linux PC. Try them out, by spending some time in learning - you will get far more satisfaction and become more productive in using your laptop.
Some websites which might be of assistance to you are listed below:-

When I was using Linux, there were 4 screens. On the bottom an icon showed which screen I was on. If you have that Icon, click the main screen (upper left) and you should be OK. Let me know if this works.

Consider downloading a specific release of Ubuntu; eeebuntu. Download the ISO and then conenct an external DVD device to it, during the BIOS screen, choose the ESC button and boot from the external device.
This Ubuntu-specific group offers three kinds of ISO's (simple, super basic, and a loaded release), all of which allow all parts to work out of the box:
If this does not work, check the informal eeepc forums
