Well a lot of this will change in Puppy 2
so I may not do it but it is a good suggestion - certainly will consider it
(truth is I only really use two of the options - so would have to educate myself first)

Thanks for the idea

"educate yourself first" Lobster - ratz...I was hoping you'd educate me.

One of the options is an odd looking word that has four or so letters that meant nothing to me.
(I keep meaning to do a search to find out more or just what it is refering to.)
New users ask me what it is when they see it but as yet I don't know.
(Though there must be an explaination in here somewhere.)

...but as you say in Pup2 it won't apply.

laptops
In the content of your intro Barry mentions the use of a laptop.
There is a non windows laptop that came out in the 90s..a small netbook by Psion.
Some clever chaps have got linux to work (kinda) on these. Only wish I was (or someone was) smart enough to get puppy to work on one. (The current Psion netbook pros now have windozs.)

I used to have a Psion PDA - very good it was too

Anyway - will add this info to the manual Smile

Quote:
The standard release of Puppy Linux 1.0.7 displays a boot menu with 5 options (Option 6 is hidden)
Pressing "Enter" will select the first option and speed up boot time
(see the isolinux.cfg in the CD image for each version's options):

Option 1 (or no input) Normal boot (default)
Option 2 Normal boot, no ACPI
Option 3 Ask which partition for pupxxx, no ACPI
Option 4 Run totally in ramdisk, no ACPI
Option 5 First boot, force multisession
Option 6 (uses memdisk for the kernel image) [not in the menu] (hidden)

ACPI=Advanced Configuration and Power Interface
ACPI transfers responsibility for power management to the operating system

1 Is the default
2 Use if having difficulties especially with Laptops
3 If you have several hard disk partitions you can call different pup001
to boot with different parameters
4 The first three options place a file on your hard disk called
pup001 This option runs in stealth mode. Your hard disk is not
touched, no file is created. It also means you have to enter
your keyboard, mouse and graphic details, set up your connection etc
5 Only use this if creating a CD or DVD recordable version of Puppy
tThat is data is save on CD or DVD - Further investigation required
- do not just select. You need to set up Puppy FIRST to use this option
6 Developer option

I have removed the pics (smaller file for dialup users) - added the boot up info
It is now only 10 pages

Be interested if the format can be imported into MS Word

Update
Feb 2006 - no pics - rtf format - 81k

Lobster

Your document loads into Microsoft Word 2002 SP3. I see no reason why it should not load into other versions of Word.

Hi Lob,

Here's the first page of your manual with Puppy 1.0.7, using usr_more.sfs version of OO 2.0....so your work loads into Open Office Writer.
