For some reason, a USB flash drive created with unetbootin and
containing CentOS-5.4-i386-netinstall.iso didn't boot on my Acer Aspire
One.  I got a boot: prompt and no matter what I typed I kept getting
"Can't find linux" "can't find centos" "cant find... whatever I typed

So I gave up.

I purchased an external DVD drive, which will in all likelihood come in
handy for some other stuff anyway.

CentOS-5.4-i386-netinstall.iso burned onto a CD booted fine with the
external DVD drive and I installed Centos 5.4 on my Acer Aspire One late
this afternoon.
