Thanks uelsk8s, I was able to load the iso on my desktop off the usb using that kernel...

But on the eeePC, it gets a kernel panic! Says something about not syncing vfs. Could this be because it's using the wrong kernel?

On the 5.9 SOHO or Light ISO there is an "ide" kernel which may work.

I don't have access to high speed internet for a few days. Is there anything else I could try in the meantime?

I dont think its because of the kernel, but cant be certain without the full error message.
If you can get that posted here it would really help

Okay, here's the full message

Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount the root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

The line before that says:

Please  append correct "root" option: Here are the available partitions

And then lists the partitions. It shows my flash drive and the two partitions of the one physical drive.

*EDIT* I tried the USB drive again on my desktop. It got the same error even though it worked fine the last time. I did a clean install on the USB, recreating all the steps I could remember, but still got the error!
