My troubles in chronological order:
1. I attempted to boot puppy-4.2.1-k184.108.40.206-seamonkey.iso (properly burned onto a cd).
Computer had 64MB ram and 18GB hd. The same thing happened when I upgraded to 512MB ram.
The boot stopped at
Performing a 'switch_root' to the layered filesystem...Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
This was right after using DBAN to wipe the hard drive.
2. I have a hard drive that was wiped with Darik's Boot and Nuke.
I am trying to install Puppy Linux.
In order to install Puppy, I need to format the hard drive.
I am using GParted to format the hard drive. gparted-live-0.4.5-2.iso
When I let GParted do it's thing (default settings) I get this:
[ 12.061109] ide-cd: hdb: weird block size 527966072
[ 12.061109] ide-cd: hdb: default to 2kb block size
3. My laptop's keyboard won't work: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-puppy-753153/
