I'm glad you resolved your mp3 issue!

I don't have much experience with the netbook version (I have an Acer, also 250GB/2GB), I tried installing it last spring when I first started using Ubuntu and had several problems although now I don't recall what they were. But my husband had been using the regular version on his laptop, so I just installed that and haven't had a problem with it so I guess it's a moot point anyway :).
