For some of us, it may be helpful to run the eeePC OS within a virtual machine. There are instructions and config files on the web, but in the case of VirtualBox, I found that some things were missing.
Unfortunately, the eeepc kernel lacks some drivers needed to make networking and sound work within VirtualBox. I made some debian packages, which install those missing drivers and also matching kernel headers to the 188.8.131.52-eeepc kernel image that comes with the "Restore eeePC" image. The headers are needed, if you want to install the VirtualBox Guest Additions on your virtualized eeePC.
So, these are the steps to run the eeePC OS within VirtualBox.
