	You can only buy today a used nx9005 so it must be a few 
years old. With Ubuntu netbooks are not good platforms. These 
portable devices are very much pointed at a particular windows 
version like Vista.

	Ubuntu might run on the nx9005 but it will not be happy with 
just 768MB of ram. It prefers a mb or more.

	Did you try a Ubuntu liveCD and guess not because you have no 
cd-rom reader do you? How did you get Linix on this netdrive?
