If it can boot from the DVD, then leave out the hard drive and floppy drive, and with a GB of RAM and it would be great for schools to use with multisession DVD Puppy.

No normal user would notice the difference between 512 and a GB, and that could take $40 off the price. You might even be able to get away with 256, though someone might notice if they're doing +5 megapixel work in GIMP. But a gig feels overkill. Even my high end computer for 3D rendering doesn't have that much. (Though it will once I get some extra money)

768MB is the most a "standard" kernel will recognise use.....to use anymore the BIG_MEM option has to be turned on in the config and the kernel recompiled, from what I've heard a slight reduction in performance can occur as well

In this configuration, multisession DVD Puppy has no hard drive swap memory available so I thought it better to have too much RAM than not enough. After all, RAM is very small and reliable, and seems to use very little power. So the question is, how much is enough? If 256 MB would handle anything 99.9% of people would ever use a multisession Puppy DVD for, with room left for future feature creep, then that's the way to go.

I work on the premise that it is my fault. Embarassed Not sure what the solution is - not even sure I understnad where that link is . . . anyone know?

I will be honest with you. Most of the early Puppy adopters on this forum are more than happy to run Puppy from CD, install on HD or try and put it on a USB or stick it on a second / old system. That is how I intend to use and enjoy Puppy. I love experimenting (I am using John Murgas great "mean Puppy 1.0.5") but there are others who want even simpler solutions.

Puppy is a lot of Linux for the size. In fact it is more than enough for some serious stuff. Nathan is working on Blender and we already have other 3D render programs as dot pups. I know some people just want an off the shelf Linux hardware Puppy. Why not? It is a good idea.

Dog biscuits all around . . . I forget what the question was but know I was to blame for something or other . . . Rolling Eyes

Testors makes an inkjet-printable kit for making decals, yu can find it in the hobby/models section of Walmarts etc & real hobby shops too, under $20. How well it works I can't say, that's up to your printer & artistic skills.

...Puppy is growing up so fast... Very Happy
