The power supply cord is rated 110-240V. When using it on a 220 power supply the plug end of the cord popped and began smoking. No damage to the computer, but now I need a new power supply cord. Where can I purchase such a cord or can I snip off the plug end and attach a normal 110 plug so I can once again recharge my Eee PC?

Your problem is far more than the battery. Your problem is the power cord. Laptops for the most part will work off the power cord even if the battery is dead or even if the battery is not in the laptop. Your power cord charges your battery and if it is bad it will not charge it. You've been working off your battery even though you might have had the power cord plugged in, but if it's bad and not charging the battery, the battery drains and then you can't get the laptop to power on at all. Go purchase a ac adapter and power cord that is designed for your system. Don't buy one that some of the big box stores sell that has a an interchangeable plug at the end designed to fit just about any laptop. Those will eventually burn *********** board out.
The power cord for your laptop is a transformer. However, is is in all likelihood, meant for use in the U.S. only and does not have a selector for 220v. You will need an power cord that is meant to work with 220v. I'm sure there is one available for your laptop. Just make sure that when you purchase it, that the output is rated the same as the one you use now and you will have no problems.
Unfortunately Xandros is a paid (yes, you have read correctly , PAID) Linux distro. You will have to pay to get a Live-USB to reinstall. Instead you should go here http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,46097.0.html and follow the instructions to create your own PCLinuxOS (the one i use) Live-USB. You will need another pc for that. After booting from it all you're gonna have to do is to click on the Install icon on the desktop.
Most likely, either the power jack inside the machine (jack itself or solder joints) or the plug on the power cord was damaged; obviously the plug is only a few dollars to replace, the jack also only a few dollars, but much more labor intensive. My experience tells me it's probably the power jack. If you have any way to externally charge your battery and, using it, find the machine operational, that pins it down pretty well. When the external supply is used, the internal battery is supposed to be switched out of the load circuit and into charging mode.
