In my M001, the touch screen seemed to be glued to the LCD frame. I really don't think that you can separate the two without risk to the touch screen. Not with my M001, but I have cracked a touch screen trying to separate it from the LCD before. They are very fragile. A look on ebay shows that a replacement (for the eee pc) 7" touch screen goes for about $40 - quite the risk, I think.
