Quick dumb question...none of the other distros i've looked at or tried will support a serial mouse. It's an older system and does not have the PS/2 option.
I would really like to try Puppy but don't want to spend the time downloading and burnig if it won't work.

I have run Puppy on old machines that use serial mouse you just have to ensure that you give it the right info when you boot.

You can use Ctrl, Alt, Backspace to go back to a terminal and redo the settings then run xwin to boot the GUI if you encounter problems.
