Asus EEE PC 900A Linux- boot problem after downloading updates

\015 After having downloaded and installed updates, the computer will now show the starting system screen, will immediately go black with a flashing cursor in left top corner, and then switch between black and gray screens. \015\012I tried resetting using the reset button to no avail. Then I tried using F9 to reset to factory settings. Upon powering down, then up again, I still get the same flashing black/gray screens.\015

Answers :

This Ubuntu-specific group offers three kinds of ISO's (simple, super basic, and a loaded release), all of which allow all parts to work out of the box:
