You should download and install Ubuntu 11.10 32-bit. Unfortunately, this netbook does not support 64-bit Ubuntu, so trying to boot from the disk would result in an error. You can get Ubuntu at www.ubuntu.com. Click "Get Ubuntu" towards the bottom of the page. Click Download and Install. Click "Start Download" (the big orange button). Burn the disk image (.ISO) to a USB flash drive and boot from it on the netbook. Let me know if you need further help.
