hd install on laptop with 40mb ram? login required
i tried to install puppy on my old laptop with only 40mb ram.
my 1,3 gb harddisk isnt partitioned yet.
so if i boot up puppy, it doesn´t start X, it hangs up and requires a login.
i don´t have password for root.
how do i get puppy to startx, or whats the password for root
i already installed feather, but now i want to try puppy
