I am in search of some help with a few domestic Linux projects I've wanted to complete for quite some time, although these tasks are relatively small I hope someone might find this interesting enough to help.

Firstly, I have an Acer Aspire One netbook running Linpus Linux, a fedora based operating system; there are ten tweaks for a new Acer Aspire One here ( Unfortunately I have not been able to get past tip number 3; meaning I  am unable to install The GIMP, Skype or VLC.

Secondly, I also have a 35HD-Dual NAS SATA (, it is possible to install a fully working DEBIAN ETCH operating system (; once again I have only had some success, for more info please see the gtxcom entry here (

Finally, any basic pointers on working in Linux (Linpus and/or Debian) would be much appreciated; such as how to install, update or remove files and programmes from the netbook and NAS.
