    Hello again. Even though this has been marked "solved" due to running out of options and getting PuppyLinux to do a normal installation and run fine, I thought I'd post the latest situation just for...

    Firstly, thanks to all for the quick response! I do have a DVD with 12.10 rather than a CD, sorry. I believe I downloaded the 32bit version, I may download it again just to check for any problems.

    Hello to all- This is my first post, and in hopes of avoiding public humiliation, have spent two days researching similar problems with no success.
