I was trying to run a N500 today from a live CD and it would not boot
from the cd drive without first changing the bios boot order. I did
not want to do this so I booted from a live usb stick (10.04)
I saw a reported comment that the n500 by default does not have the
bios set to boot from CD.
I got to the boot order menu by using F12 at the first screen, then
choosing usb. If I had edited the bios for a changed boot sequence I
think I would still have needed to use F12.
