There are also programs available on some of the Eee PC help sites which are supposed to allow you to install the full Xandros system rather than the default version. The system also comes with a CD/DVD with all the drivers for Win XP if you choose to install that OS. You could ofcourse install Ubuntu from an external optical drive.
