Since Syllable 0.6.6 get USB-CDROM boot support, it's possible to install Syllable on EeePC. For regret network card is not yet supported. Classical installation will is pretty easy, you will need only download Syllable install CD, write it on CD, boot from external CD-ROM and follow instruction on the screen.
If you want multiboot Syllable with Linux you will need do next. Since the included “Linux recovery DVD” doesn't behave properly, there is no reason to re-partition the disk in advance, because as soon as you insert the DVD, to install Xandros Linux, it will restore the original partitions layout.
You will need do follow steps:
1) Insert the recovery DVD, to get a fresh Xandros to work with. This is important because it simplifies the subsequent process significantly. For the same reason it is important *not* to boot Xandros right after.
2) Boot a “normal” Linux live CD and delete all other partitions than the first (it contains the system). Create a new data partition for Xandros. This partition must be located right after the system partition (and must be reformatted with ext3), which is where Xandros expects to find it. Create also the other partitions you want.
3) You can now boot Xandros, or just continue to the next step.
4) The included GrUB does not support AFS, so I chose to let Syllable install its own GrUB in MBR, and then chainloade Xandros, as it is the solution I am most comfortable with. Since the supplied GrUB is already installed in the MBR, it's a good idea to move it to the partition boot sector. This is done with the commands “root (hd0, 0)” and “setup (hd0, 0)”, from GrUB (you can use the GrUB on the Syllable install CD).
During the installation of Syllable, its own GrUB is configured, which usually goes completely automatically, but in this case we must remember to change the lines “root (hd2,X)” to “root (hd0,X)”, and to remove the additional entries (Xandros's data partition, and what else is non-system partitions).
5) Woohaaa, dual-boot; Xandros and Syllable
