Hello.
I am using Puppy 1.0.5.
At first I ran it from my CD-ROM but like it very much and installed it on my hard drive with intentions of using it each day. I am looking to dump Windows for good.

Anyway, upon bootup I see my desktop.
However, I see I am always logged in as root.
How do I create user accounts and log in as a regular user?

Thanks,
PuppyWiFi

You can run some applications as spot.
I suggest you press the help button in the menu.

Puppy runs as root. For more info on security just ask.

Related Q: I d/l'd F-Prot just to see what it was like. It warned against running a scan as root. Are there dotpups where this kind of warning is more than a caution?
