Dude I have installed 11.10 on my ASUS X101 netbook. Here is the process how to install it.First you have to download "universal usb installer" from pendrivelinx original website, then download the ubuntu 11.10 iso from ubuntu official website, Insert a blank thumbdrive, Gradually run your universal usb installer program and follow instructions to download ubuntu to your thumb drive. After that restart your netbook and press f2 to enter the BIOS. Properly alter the boot order so that the ASUS so that it will boot from your thumbdrive. ASUS will boot, click on "install ubuntu" and follow the instructions.

Dear friend I think you are mistaken "linx on a pendrive installer" is a window program. After installing Ubuntu you will get an installer package called unetbootin which is used for the software centre. So kindly recheck it. Thanks.

When you enter into the BIOS you should keep Fn button pressed and also press F2 while booting your netbook. After that you should gradually change your boot order. I will suggest you to install lubuntu 11.10 from a CD using any external CD drive. I am quite sure it will function very properly. It makes the connectivity a little slow but it gradually works better.
