Everything about your laptop:

Thinkpads of this time usualyl have Neomagic video and Crystal audio. Both are a pain to setup under Puppy. Now, it says you have a Neomagic MagicGraph128XD. This should be supported by Bladehunter's custom Puppy. His bandwidth got shot, but it's a new month so you should be able to download it at

Good luck with the Thinkpad. Nice computers (I've one), but it takes some effort to make everything work right.

I have a Thinkpad R-30. The version of Puppy referenced by keenerd worked fine on my Thinkpad.

I also suggest that you give this version a try.
