I just picked up an ASUS EEE PC 1000H, an ultra portable mini-notebook. I must say, I am pleased. I purchased the EEE PC 1000H to replace my busted Acer laptop. I realize I am sacrificing some functionality for size and portability, but it is a fair trade-off. The EEE PC 1000H PC comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, but I wanted XP Professional. In this tutorial I will explain the steps necessary to install XP Professional on the Asus EEE PC 1000H. (These steps may also work to install XP Pro on the EEE PC 701, 900, or 901, but I cannot test. If it works for you on those models, please leave a note in the comments below.)  The method of making a custom Windows install is also sometimes called “slipstreaming”.

The basic theory is that we want to connect to an Access Point using WEP Encryption, but we do not know the key. We will attack the wifi router, making it generate packets for our cracking effort, finally cracking the WEP key. I have tested this technique on an IBM Thinkpad x60 and Acer 5672 and the WIFI Chipset in those machines work for sure.
