Personnaly, i have Arch on my eee901 for the past 2 years. Stock install with eee-utils, cpufreq, gnome3. Works flawlessly. Boots in a matter of seconds. Out of the box S2, S3 and S4 settings working. I installed the cpufreq plugin for gnome with the user governor, to control the frequency myself. I only had to edit /etc/rc.local to add fan settings, throttling hooks.
Every thing is explained on the arch wiki: there is a page dedicated to eee901. You can easily install Arch from a USB drive (again look at the wiki for help), even a small one. Installing gnome or xfce with all required dependencies is done by typing "pacman -Sy [gnome|xfce]".
If you are just a little familiar with linux, the CLI and VI, honestly, Arch has great benefits for netbooks: small packages, simple and fast.
P.S. if you do choose to give a try to arch, you can message me directly in case of issues. But during work hours, I don't check my mails, and my work hours tend to drag like anyone else.... Sorry in advence :-)

I meant 10.04, actually; finger slipped on the numkeys. Ah well.
