Smile Acer One and its OS

I have an Acer One and want to ditch the limpus light for some Ubuntu action. Can someone please give me the most simplified checklist of how to do this? I have many friends who have many opinions on this and how to proceed. I was just looking for the right way and the easiest.

This may be useful since the Acer 1 doesn't have a optical drive. I haven't tried installing Linux this way but it seems like a good concept.

This is a little off topic but how do you like the Acer 1? I have been considering getting one of the ones with XP.
