In Win98 My Documents I made a new folder and named it mypuppy then I went to the download site for puppy-barebones-1.0.4.There I found md5sum.exe,then I "right click and save"that to mypuppy folder. Then I did the same for puppy-barebones-1.0.4.iso.txt, then I did the same for puppy-barebones-1.0.4.iso .About 4 hours later the download was finished. Then I opened mypuppy folder,all three are there.Now I need to open a MSDOS box in that folder ,this is where I get stuck.

Open the dos window

Try it by using these commands

    * cd "c:\my documents\mypuppy" or cd c:\mydocu~1\mypuppy

    * type nameofbarebones.iso.md5

    * md5sum nameofbarebones.iso


Compare the two sums

Got Windows 98? Try PupWin98.zip at http://www.freeveda.org/linux/puppy/ which is too easy to explain. No need for CD. No partition danger. No dual boot confusion. Based on Puppy Linux at http://www.PuppyLinux.com.
