Debian on my Eee

I installed Debian on my 701 4GB Eee the other day. Runs perfectly, I couldn't ask for more. The only thing I need to fix is wifi. I either use the MadWifi or the Atheros drivers. Doesn't sounds too hard, I had it working before...apparently. Not sure if sound works or not, I don't use it that much so I disabled it in the BIOS to save power.

Something is wrong with my server.... I tried to access it via SSH & HTTP and nothing. Turn on the monitor; kernel panic. Whatever, I rebooted. CRC error. Rebooted; works fine but Apache doesn't start.

Whoa

Whoa. I haven't posted here in a wee bit. And, its almost Friday!
Nothing really new has been happening. Eat, sleep, go to school, repeat.
I took apart my [701] Eee the other day and actually put it back together correctly and...it works! So, I figured out I need to find/buy a U.FL to RP-SMA connector as I plan to put an external on it somewhere, preferably the shiny metal looking thinks on the left/right side. I currently have the stock antennas unhooked from the WiFi card, which sucks since I don't get as good as signal (duh!) but I use my other USB WiFi connector.

Life with eeeXubuntu.

Well, I finally chose eeeXubuntu. Install was quick and configuring was even easier. After some kernel updates, I did have to recompile the madwifi drivers. I also have to find and compile Ralink drivers, since without them, the other dongle that I use doesn't have monitor mode enabled.
Its pretty minimal right now, I just updated and installed some security/penetration programs.
Anywho, I shall be off (I'm quite tired too)....

New OS?

Well, I've been debating over if I should install a different OS on my Asus EEE. I've tried Ubuntu Eee, Xandros and now Backtrack. I love Ubuntu, so I might try eeeXubuntu, the Xubuntu customized Eee version. The default Xandros is decent, but....no. Backtrack is really cool, but its based on Slackware, so its not exactly user friendly. So I think in the end, I might install Xubuntu, and have Backtrack on a USB jump drive or SD card.
Results to come.

Cracking WPA...well sorta.

I've managed to crack WPA, sorta. Problem is, the passkey must be in the dictionary, which might be a problem. Since some people could use made up words or names.
Nevertheless, I'm still able to crack WEP and WPA [on my eee]. I even get a strong signal from AP's, like yesterday when a AP was a minimum of 300m away!
I'm just blown away from what my Eee can do. I had Xandros in it for a while, then Ubuntu Eee and now Backtrack. It's like my own "offensive security" station, on the go. The only thing I am disappointed in is the battery. Mine, has a 4400mAH battery, but at the time when I got it, I thought it had a 5200mAH battery; The difference is about 30 minutes. If I turn down the brightness, turn off the volume, It lasts for about 2 and a half hours, or so.

Backtrack 3 on eeePC

I finally got Backtrack 3 working on my 4GB 701 ASUS Eee, following this tutorial. Worked perfectly, and I was able to crack 64 & 128 bit WEP at home under 5 minutes flawlessly. Although, Backtrack 3 beta has a installer, but Backtrack 3 final doesn't. So, I downloaded the installer from TPB and continued on (of course, I partitioned before). The installer took about 15~ minutes. I actually prefer this over Ubuntu Eee, which I had before.
