You mean you're running Precise 5.4.3 with kernel 3.2.29? You have a link for the dwnld?

It is a "known issue" that the nvidia geforce fx 5200 card gives problems with most recent Puppies including Precise 5.4.3

The only driver that will load is nouveau and this gives missing menus and other missing graphics with a standard boot. Other drivers such as nv and vesa can not be loaded via xorg wizard.

The easiest solution is to boot the live CD with:-

Code:
puppy pfix=ram nouveau.noaccel=1


and then edit /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau.conf to:-

Code:
options nouveau noaccel=1


before creating your save-file and rebooting.

This will allow the nouveau driver to load and work correctly with the fx 5200 card.

Alternatively, you can install the proprietary driver from the nvidia website. For this you need devx and kernel sources loaded and you also have to exit to prompt to run the installer file. Let us know if you need more detail about this.
