If you have this “older” Eee PC model, don't despair! It works just fine with the latest Ubuntu Netbook Remix.
I have installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) on an Eee PC 701 model 4G, which has only 4 GB of SSD disk, and everything worked just fine. The built-in webcam might be disabled by default in the BIOS, so if Cheese says “no camera”, check the BIOS settings (Press F2 during power-up).
