More information needed!
People would applause Mandriva 2008.1 as the best Linux distro for Eee is because of its perfect OOTB hardware support. As for release 2009, although a few of the supports are retrogressed, but Mandriva still outstands with a lot of generic support for netbooks. It doesn't require 3rd party kernels (as Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10 do), nor does it require much scripting and patching to enable support for Eee hardwares. Many fixes are already included in released kernels, so just click and install will do.
/homeor other directories on the SD card and have finished the installation, then after the first time booting, please DO NOT reboot again until you have done the updates and installed the experimental kernel, or the default kernel of Mandriva 2009 would break your partition table on SD during next boot. (detail see below)
No, as far as suggested by Adam Williamson and tested (by Roberto Ciang), the above three steps could already bring near 95% good experience using Mandriva 2009 on Eee PC 701. There is a patch script provided by L'ordikc, but it may not be necessary.
Items not yet tested or awaiting further information gathering:
