    Re: Puppy Distro

    I too have had nothing but great experiences with Puppy. I am currently running a "home-rolled" version of 4.0 on an ancient Compaq Armada 1592DMT sporting a Pentium I @ 233Mhz, 98MB ram and a 3GB HDD. Everything works on this old gal...even wireless (using ndiswrapper). The kicker is it runs even faster than any of the 32 bit dos based windows (95, 98, ME).

    I appreciate the comments on hardware used with Puppy. I salvage old machines and this kind of information really helps me out a lot!

    Hmm...I've just gotten two old machines, and I was kind of avoiding Puppy (I think I misread the RAM requirements, now that I think about it). So I went DSL->Ubuntu GTK 1.2 Remix->Ubuntu Server...I think I'll add Puppy to that list, just to see how it goes.

    I also agree that Puppy is a very good distro and in my opinion the greatest of the small Linux distrobutions. It runs very well on my brother's 128mbRAM laptop. It instantly recognized all external hardware and the internal wifi card.

    The problem I had was that when I enter the BIOS, the system stats are displayed, and I saw "64MB RAM" and thought "shoot!"...and neglected to see the additional "64MB extended RAM".

    If you would like to check out my version, I have it upped to mediafire. Here's the link:

    download

    It comes zipped with md5 (mediafire won't let you upload an iso). Let me know what you think if you decide to try it.
