I was given an eee901 and I'm trying to install lucid off a USB stick. I keep getting problems with xorg.
I thought I would boot straight in and get to try the live version; there was XP on the computer as supplied but all o/s has been wiped off.
What do I need to do to get into Puppy?

Are you booting from a USB stick? From what I can make out, Puppy seems to load into RAM, but then hangs at some point in the configuration. Is that correct?

This would probably be a better version of Puppy to try.
It is designed for eeeepc

eeepc's need some special software setups.

Hmmm, actually, there is a BIOS snag or two regarding Windows/EEE combinations. And the OP wiped the drive. Syslinux might be in order.

Managed to reload XP so now I should be able to have another go at loading Puppy.
XP is not staying!

OK well I have slacko puppy running live.
O have tried to install it on the eee901 but have hit problems; take a look at the gparted attached, I don't see both drives or the SD card.
On the desktop we see sdb1 and sdd1, plus SDC which must be the USB stick I'm running puppy on.

Gparted shows dev/sda1 unknown 3.76g
Unallocetd 2.22mb.

In the puppy menu --> Filesystem is Pmount that will tell you what is what, and if mounted or not.
