usually the system will come pre-loaded.....if you need to reinstall or change OS' you'll basically follow a guide such as this:

EEEguides.com: Install Windows XP on the Asus Eee PC

that will guide you through putting an install of windows onto your USB pen drive which you will install the OS from

Some models come with recovery disks as well. They're intended to be used with an external optical drive.
