For ppl who want use Google Chromium-browser:
Not realy big deal to install it. But you have to know what 'terminal' and 'root' mean. Or maybe not wink

So, here we go:
1. We have to add new source for chromium in /etc/apt/sources.list
Start terminal, become root (type su and password when prompted)
After you are root type scite /etc/apt/sources.list. It'll open source.list file for you.
Add there: deb htt_p://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu hardy main and deb-src htt_p://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu hardy main and save file. (NOTE: Remove this _ in url)
That Hardy mean the same version of main packages as we use in Elive 2.0 (debian stable)

2. Type in terminal apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xfbef0d696de1c72ba5a835fe5a9bf3bb4e5e17b5
to add a key.

3. After all this we have to update an information about packages and install it. So type in terminal as root:
apt-get update It will update info about packages
apt-get install chromium-browser It will install chromium-browser
apt-get install chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-nonfree It will install codecs
apt-get install chromium-browser-l10n It will install extralanguage support (for inetrace of browser)
That is it.

It is daily upgradeble branch. So you can update it daily (run apt-get update && upgrade in terminal as root)

NOTE: It is Not even beta it is developer version. Beta is a Chrome.
But, Chromium work just perfect.

Asus EeePC 1000H [Elive 2.0 Topaz]
Toshiba Satellite p10-802 -ATI video, ATI chipset, RealTech audio- [Elive 2.0 Topaz]
I hate ATI... but I love Elive. It work with ATI with no problem.
