Having trouble installing slackware 12.2 on my Asus1000HE. Trying to do a usb install and I followed instructions as per AlienBob and when I boot up I just get an error message "Missing Operating System" am I missing a step somewhere with the usb image iso?

I assume you trying to boot from the USB drive?
Is the computer set to boot from USB first?
Please post the link with the instructions.

Missing Operating System basically means the bootloader is missing. You can check to see if the drive is readable on a windows PC. It will not verify the bootloader but will check to see if the img copied correctly.

You did use the dd command to copy the image to the drive? If not then no bootloader was installed.
