Thank your for your immediate response.
I think I am going to buy an external usb DVD player/burner and install
Linux Mint 9 from the cover disk in Linux format Issue 134 (August 2010):
http://www.linuxformat.com/archives. Eee is without an internal DVD
If you ask them nicely, they may even send you a disc.
You may chose KDE in stead of Gnome from your log in page. Linux mint
remember your choice.
And you have to add proprietary drivers etc. And this is not difficult
from the program menu!
I have done this from our HP Altec Lansing lap top, with good results. And
help from Mozilla Firefox options as well.
However, nice to hear that other people meet the same upgrading problem as
I meet, and that a solution obviously not is imminent.
