Re: Cannot connect to web on EEC PC 701
Hello Lil' ol Lady, (LOL)
Are you able to check your network connection? Go to your control panel, click on Internet Options, click the Connections tab, then the LAN settings. Make sure the Automatically detect settings is selected and nothing else. close all windows and retry your Internet. Good Luck.

I assumed you were looking for the EEE PC 701 (XP) Manual and not the Linux version..
If so, you can get the manual from here:
(Click on the "Free User" download option)
Each computer needs its own operating system in which you do you have linux as a pre-install. If you want XP, you will need an external dvd/cd rom drive. It is worth it if you think about it...running xp, you're bound to run into other software you will likely need in the future, so getting an external cd/dvd drive would not be a waste of your money.
Most 701 models came with a web cam built in. You can install an external one easily.. just plug it in to the usb port.
Previous poster is wrong... why would you need a Cd drive ? You could either download the drivers from the webcam maker's website, or simply copy the file from the CD to a SD card with another computer. If you have a home network setup, you could simply copy the files via network file sharing.
If you have the linux version of the EeePC 701, then make sure you buy a compatible webcam that has drivers in linux.
