Ubuntu no longer makes the netbook edition because its Unity interface has been included with mainstream Ubuntu, meaning the default Ubuntu is for netbooks, too. It's always recommended to install the latest version of Ubuntu, especially if you're running relatively new hardware. You'll likely have better luck with Ubuntu 11.10 than with 10.10.

Looks like a lot of users reported that their keyboard doesn't work in older versions of Ubuntu (seems to work if you include the noacpi = off boot parameter), though you haven't mentioned a keyboard issue. I recommend running Ubuntu 11.10, at least try a live session to see if it works. After installing Ubuntu if Brasero is still installed you can remove it to make it more like the Netbook edition was (unless you're considering burning discs using an external disc drive).

but I hav try ubuntu 11.10 but it's too roocky for my netbook and otherwise my prosesor fan also spin with more faster not like win7.That why I want to install 10.10 netbook edition – Dean ec Jan 8 '12 at 5:03
Dean. If there is no specific reason why you NEED 10.10 then just stick with 10.04. But dont install NB edition, use the normal desktop..its quicker in my experience(I've installed it on a dozen or so netbooks), then add a dock (docky/cairo amongst others). 10.10 is supported only until this april 2012, 10.04 supported to april 2013. – matt Jan 8 '12 at 13:11
If the fan is the issue, there are ways of solving that. Found a recent forum thread here: Seems like a trivial reason not to use the latest Ubuntu, I'm sure you can find an appropriate solution for your netbook easily enough. – titaniumtux Jan 8 '12 at 17:44
