This was a classic case or rtfm.
I read the help file and there was the answer. Drivers included with Puppy.
I downloaded the modules-2.4.29-complete.tar.gz and extracted the ns558 module to root.
Next i editted /etc/rcd/rclocal and added
modprobe joydev
modprobe analog
modprobe gameport
insmod /root/ns558
rebooted then in terminal cat /dev/input/js0 and joystick working.
Just as the help said it would.
Regards
Sharke
