I have an old Toshiba laptop with 160mb of ram
and the video chip is a chips and tech 65555 pci (windows)
Knoppix 3.3 says it is ether a ct65555 or a f65555 HiQuPro rev c6

Puppy boots fine until you get to the video setting where you let it know
what resolution you want to run, then it hangs with a blank screen.

Here is a googled link I found but it is a little beyond my skills right now.

http://www.fifi.org/cgi-bin/man2html/usr/X11R6/man/man4/chips.4.gz

I sure would like to get puppy to run on this laptop.

Any help would be appreciated

I think I may have posted this in the wrong part of the forum the first time.

I hope to eventually get to the point where I can write scripts and compile
programs and actually understand what I'm doing.

Gak! Next time you post a "screenshot," could you first use mtPaint to crop and resize the image (Image->Resize Canvas) so it is not so large? Shocked Thanks.
