Just wondering whether it's possible to have the download as a pdf file or other so that we can study it before we get puppy running.
Regards
Fred

Windows can't open the file because of the .gz. Just above your help file is a Installing Puppy PDF. It would be great if you could add a Beginners Help PDF at the same location. I feel like I really need it before I try and load anymore puppies.
Thanks
Fred

That's why I wrote "remove extension .gz".

That means: rename it to anything.html
Every (internet capable) operating system knows how to open a html file.

Rename the original file from .ncd to .html. The file is actually a html file. You can export it to .pdf from your browser if you wish.

Hi smokey,
I've tried renaming the file with no success. I don't export files to pdf. I guess as soon as I get a puppy running and my browser working I'll open the pet and save it as a pdf then. I still think you shouldn't put a pet file on a windows based forum.
Regards

Hi frerom,

I cannot help you how to rename a file in windows because I do not have windows.

I do not think that this forum is a windows based forum. It is a worlwide web forum based on html (or htm for windows users).

My regards

EDIT
Why don't you just install NoteCase in your operating system Idea
