Hi Tony, Chris, Hal et al,

After several attempts I have managed to install Xubuntu desktop 16.02
and my EeePC is working at an acceptable speed, without any apparent
loss of data. I would like to get rid of the other, non-performing
ubuntu versions if that's possible.

I think I have worked out what went wrong. I can send a post to this
list if anybody is interested?

Thanks for all your help.
