I'm new to this distro but have used LiveCD's before(Knoppix, for one). I burned the ISO of v1.0.3 that I got from http://goosee.com/puppy & tried booting from it w/ the CD in my burning drive. I get an initial, very hard to identify grey/black screen at which time I hit "Enter". The system begins to start up, I can see it indentifying my system hardware etc. but it halts at a line just after it has read some information regarding USB. As nothing happens for awhile, I'll hit enter again but still nothing happens, page will just drop 1 line. I tried to type something like "logon" but then an error message seems to indicate a problem with "scancode of keyboard"??? I have a wireless USB keyboard, could that be the problem? At this point I don't think I'm able to type commands; all that is accepted is the "Enter" key. Text will show but apparently has no other effect.

Please help! Crying or Very sad

It may be your USB keyboard, but not because it is wireless. I have a wireless keyboard that works fine with Puppy, but it is PS/2 (I think that's what it is called.)

I seem to recall other reports in the forum of trouble with USB keyboards at boot. If you can find an old PS/2 keyboard, try it and see what happens.
