Netbook Specific Notes

If your EeePC boots into grub-rescue after an OS update, try this:
sudo apt-get install lilo
sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr

This should fix the Master Boot Record and allow you to choose Ubuntu or Windows again. (Fix found by Julie G.)

I discovered an interesting potential problem. If you turn your wireless hardware off (FN key + F2 key) in Windows, then boot into Ubuntu you can't turn it back on in Ubuntu. I could only turn it off and on in Windows. If I turned it off in Windows, booted into Ubuntu I had to boot into Windows, turn it back on and then shutdown before it would work in Windows or Ubuntu. -- Julie G.
