Fist you will need the drivers found here http://seoroot.com/blog/acer-laptops/acer-aspire-one-150-windows-xp-drivers.html
and you will need to slip stream the sata drivers into your install disk Sorry that I'm to lazy to type how to do it with nlite here is a link to a guide

And the driver that HAS to be slip streamed onto a disk is found here

How to reformat an asus aspire 1 netbook


A) It's an Acer Aspire 1 - AOA110, or AOA150.
B) Came with Windows XP, or a version of Linux.
Linpus Linux Lite

Means;
1) You can use a version of Linux, and not use Windows again.
Ubuntu Linux for example, is free.

2) You could use a flashdrive with a data recovery program on it, and try to recover the files that have been written over.
Pretty slim chance of that.

3) You could buy a new, genuine copy of Windows XP, and put Windows XP back on it.

Install Sierra Wireless 595U on Acer Aspire One Linux


I did get my 595u to connect but need to solve some more problems.
First setup the right click menu as described in http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2008/09/05/ten_aspire_one_tips/

Then update software with software updater.

I installed an update to hal-info that may be needed. Search for hal-info and fc8and download the latest (or later than 200803) rpm. Usually select the title in rpmfind to download the rpm. Save it to Documents. Next open a terminal with the right click menu.
Change to the Documents directory 'cd Documents' ( hint type "cd Do<TAB><ENTER>')
List files - 'ls'
Should see the hal-info....rpm file
change to root
su<ENTER>
-- enter setup password --
Install the rpm with
'rpm -Uvh hal*rpm'

Should see success.

Next Right click -> System -> Add/Remove Software
Enter password
Check Development ->Development Tools

May need to uninstall gettext (to replace lw version with fc8 version) with
rpm -e gettext

Then go to http://www.sierrawireless.com/faq/ShowFAQ.aspx?ID=1235 and download and download source code. Here is where I had trouble . Linpus did not include headers or module Make files. Another kernel fc8 tree was available. I booted into the fc kernel by editing /boot/grub/grub.conf and setting default=0. This break file manager. I will try to obtain linpus kernel build info and try again.
