[R] R on a eeepc 901 ?

When I do:
apt-get install ksmserver kicker

I get a message stating that there is no header in
the package (Xandros came in Spanish, so I have to translate
the message, which is not easy)

Aterwards, I have to Edit sources.list file and create
a preferences file. As the repositories that are mentioned

are for the 701, I don't think this is safe, I could just get wrong
updates and screw up everything.

The page states
"If anyone has experiences with a EEE PC 901 then please add them here! "
which means that these directions are not for 901. I'm willing to try, 
but would need someone to guide me. Probably it's just a matter of
setting the appropriate repositories and priorities for the 901
