Keyboards look different in every country.
The keys under "12345" look like this in Germany:
QWERTZ

Note the "Z", while americans have a "Y" here.
In other countries you have "AZERTY".
So puppy simply lets you choose, what keyboard you have.
If you can not scroll down, your keyboard is not working due to the reasons I described above.
You will need another keyboard then.
An adaptor is a small "thing" that allows you to stick the keyboard into another port of your computer.
That port is round and called "Ps/2". Ps/2 is a old way to connect keyboards, and was standard for many years.
So that might work better with puppy.

Laptop: just try.
On mine, puppy worked great, until the Fan of the Laptop died (it is quite old).

Hi Mark,
thank you very much for your kindness and time for my problems.
I understand, now the only thing hwne I don`t have this keyboard they want me to choose? I have the hp wireless keyboard, have no other one, so i think best is really to try it on the laptop when I get him, only i don`t want to mass up windows98.
I will let you know after tried him out. only one more question, when they also want to let me choose a keyboard on the laptop then I don`t no witch one to choose, cause they are build in.
thanks again,
Ilana.

On the notebook, do not choose USB for the inbuilt Keyboard.

I think inbuilt keyboards are handled as Ps/2 keyboards or detected automatically.
