    i thought your netbook dont have any dvd rom so if you want to install ubuntu/linux then have to do it with pendrive so gave you the instruction to make a boot loader and then rest of the thing will show in your screen when you start to install it

    - - - Updated - - -

    if you want to install from cd or burning the iso file here is the installation instruction https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GraphicalInstall

    Which linux distribution you want to use?

    If you are looking for a free OS as well as easy (child's play) linux distro, use Ubuntu.
    If you want to experience some enterprise level linux and want to play around its config, I recommend you to use RedHat Enterprise Linux or CentOS (it's free).
    If you think that you are going to be an advance user, try BackTrack 5 R3 or Kali Linux.

    After choosing your desired disro, go to its site or official support forum. You will find all the know-hows there (from installation guide to troubleshoot yourself). Trust me, if you really want to experience true linux, you need to visit those sites frequently.

    Kali linux or backtrack is used for penetration testing / hacking...why would you even recommend that distro? First of all there's nothing advanced about backtrack/kali linux...it's similar to Ubuntu & based on debian.

    Linux for advanced users are distros that are challenging to setup or even begin with & gives you plenty of customisation options...like Arch/Gentoo, etc.

    For netbook, personally even though Ubuntu is in my opinion better than windows but I'd still not recommend it as it's kinda bloated & uses lots of memory.

    But you could try giving ubuntu xfce version, if you never used Linux I'd not encourage you to set it up on a netbook...it's a pain for beginners to get everything working.

    I will recommend using Ubuntu.

    plug in a USB bootable ubuntu.
    select install
    select swap and main partition
    go ahead
    connect to internet
    install all drivers
    good to go.
