Why not add a 'puppy.config' file, to execute at boot?
Then I thought, why not also get the rc.sysinit script to look for a configuration file, like "puppy.config", after the squashfs file has been mounted. This config file could execute at every bootup, and do stuff like set environmnent variables. Just a thought, haven't actually done it.
I feel this would be useful. Most of the time when installing new Puppy I would like to retain:
config (mouse and keyboard and resolution)
mail and FTp settings
Some of this could be on a secure and registerable on-line server (anyone up for that?)
Before I forget . . .
You can not run Mozilla Mail if running Mozilla (you have to close Mozilla mail first and Puppy prompts you to do this)
However if you run Mozilla mail first then you can open Mozilla Browser
