I use the same EEEPC model, if someone gives me the correct
instructions I would be happy to build an iso/package. If I can build
a simple software package to do this it might be easier since moving
an iso file from my computer to somewhere on the net with a good
bandwidth might be difficult. But am happy to do the work as I benefit
from having a Haiku image I can use myself.
