I want to put puppy linux on a usb drive and install it on a old CPU, but i couldn't figure out how to do it.

Could someone give explicit directions please? Really explicit, simple thing like what browser do i use? Exactly what to click on, screen shots if possible.

Im new to this, and am confused very easily.

Details: Im running Ubuntu 12.10, they computer i want to install puppy on is a windows XP.

Thank you very much!

Im not sure, whats a good version?

Am correct that Puppy runs well with old machines with small ram? Mine only has less than 1GB.
Wait I just found something called macpup, is that as small as regular Puppy?

You don't want MacPup. As a beginner, stick with the mainstream builds. As for ram- you have more than enough.

For Slacko:

Choices

Slacko 5.4 is available with a choice of kernels, 3.2.33 compiled for processors that do not support PAE and 3.4.17 for processors that do. The 4g (non PAE) version comes with a choice of Opera browser or Firefox, a major departure from Puppy's offering of Seamonkey only. Of course all major browsers are available from the Puppy Package Manager.

For Precise there's a regular build and a retro:

For loading it onto a flash drive, you want one of these:

I dont have to be able to load to a flash drive.

May i ask whats wrong with MacPup?
The computer im going to put the os is not one i use a lot at all, so it dosnt have to be really compatible.

Oh and the ram is 512 GB i think.


Thanks so much!

If you can boot from cdrom, burn the iso with one of Ubuntu's burning utilities- 16x max.

Later for leg pull'n. That's a relatively new device and the reason I suggested you pass on MacPup.

Dump this line to the forum:
Code:
cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

I'm sensing it's a recent kernel you're gonna need..

Then for you I'd suggest: antiX, #! >> aka CrunchBang, or maybe PCLinuxOS. ALL live mediums..
