Question about Canonical Ltd. Ubuntu
1. I would suggest finding out which model Eee PC you are using and the hard drive size & type (4GB SSD, 160GB SATA, etc...). If you have less than 4GB, I would probably recommend using another Linux distro, as the Netbook Edition of Ubuntu is pretty heavy.
2. Next, I would probably suggest plugging in the Eee PC (Software/OS installation is very power intensive).
3. Download your distribution (Ubuntu Netbook Edition or Desktop, etc).
4. Download a copy of unetbootin for your PC (unetbootin.sourceforge.net -- There are Linux & Windows versions available.)
5. Using a USB thumb drive (USB Memory stick), you will want to wipe the drive (format using FAT/FAT32 filesystem).
6. Run Unetbootin, selecting the proper USB thumb drive & ISO image from the Ubuntu website.
7. After Unetbootin is finished, close it and safely disconnect the USB drive.
8. Next, plug the USB thumb drive into the Eee PC.
9. Turn on power to the Eee PC & after seeing the initial BIOS splash, hit the ESC key on the keyboard. This should bring up a boot selection screen. Using the arrow keys, select the appropriate USB drive and hit Enter (Return).
10. If all goes well, you should be running Ubuntu Desktop/Ubuntu Netbook Edition as a live desktop. (The installer is a link on the desktop.)
11. There are several step-by-step guides out there, so check them out, if needed. The installer should be very simple on this type of hardware, etc.

The procedure is as follows
Download ubuntu S/w at:
It will be an .iso file.
Burn it to a CD/DVD
Boot from the Ubumtu media and install Ubuntu on your system.
It will automatically add operating systems already present on your system to os boot list.
