This is off topic but it is a jungle out there. FireFox is a really good idea. I know some EeePC users are running older versions of XP with updates Turned off. I/E 6.0 unpatched is too dangerous for anything but reseaching malware.

I am running Beta 3 on my EeePC, My desktop, on the MacBook and the G4 PowerPC with Tiger. It works great.
