I recently downloaded wine for puppy and got it to install fine. I went to www.frankscorner.org and got instructions to install my game. Everything goes well until i realize that the game takes 750 mb. How do i install it? There is not enough space on the pup1 file i cant resize it past 1 gig it bugs puppy. It wont let me install to a mounted hdd that has 1 gig free help!!!

Is this a type 2 hard drive install on a FAT32 partition or what? Which version of Puppy are you using? How much RAM? Have you another partition? If so, what filesystem (FAT32, NTFS, ext2, ext3)?

Before you waste time:

If it is a game using direct X, it certainly won't run.
You would need a commercial version of wine called "cedega", but there is no dotpup available, as that would be an illegal copy.

In wine you just can run OpenGL-based games like Halflife 1.

Open a console.
run "winecfg".
Go to the "drives"-tab.

Add a drive.
For the "path" choose /mnt/home or where you mounted your fat32-partition.

Now install your game to that drive (typically D:\).
