A stock Eee uses a version of Xandros Linux. You can install most other Linux Distros on it if you wish (Slackware, Ubuntu, Suse, Fedora) There are many Linux video tools http://www.videohelp.com/tools/sections/linux-video-tools
The netbook doesn't come with a CD/DVD drive, you can connect an external USB one though.
Since you questions more related to how to USE the EEE and Xandros directly (instead of generic Linux video) EeeUser might be a better resource for you.
Keep in mind, a Netbook is not a Notebook/Desktop replacement. They are small portable devices that fill the void between PDA/Smart Phone, and a lugable Notebook.Linux _is_ user-friendly. It is not ignorant-friendly and idiot-friendly.
I hope you aren't intending to edit anything more than a couple of youtube clips at the old youtube resolution, because that is about all the Eee PC is up to. It is not designed to much more than browse, email and note taking.Read my blog here.
