Dear friends:

I discover the page of puppy, so, I wanted to try it.

In this way I download firts the mozilla version, nothing.

then I tried with opera, nothing.

I have 256 mb of ram and an intel processor of 1.2 mhz.

I think I configured the bios correctly because if I put a Windows98 disk, it works correctly.

I used the checksum program with both downloads

Can somebody help me:

thanks.

Did your checksums work out?
Are you SURE you are burning the ISO images correctly and not just copying files?

If you are burning images from ISO and WIndows uses burnCdCC from the wiki

hope that helps

yes, checksums are ok.

I use CD-RW, Do you think this can be a problem?

I will try your link, thanks for your interest.

I would doubt it I use a cd-rw on all my machines here with no problems.
What are the files on the cd ? If its one file with an extention .iso then thats your problem, you need to burn the .iso file as and image not just copy it. Have a good look at the cd burning prog and find something like burn image from a file.
If you have boot.cat, image.gz, isolinux.bin, isolinux.cfg, usr_cram.fs and vmlinuz then the disk has been burnt the right way, what happens when you try and boot it ?

Do you have more than one CD drive in your PC?

If so try the other one.

I had a PC that was this way.

Could boot win98 in one drive but not the other, but puppy liked the other
one better.

One of my PC's can boot from ether drive.

I also had to make a change in the BIOS setup on one machine.

Changed from a Plug and pray OS to a non plug and play OS.

Then Puppy would boot properly.

Does it hang at a certain point? or do you get nothing ( no boot at all )?
