How to run this script to do a factory reset !


I want to do a factory reset for my Puppy Linux. I came a cross this download in a other Linux forum.
http://http://www.murga-linux.com/pu...ic.php?t=87989 <--- There the link for the script
How would I run this script? Do I copy and past on to the USB? Or is there a better way to do a factory reset for Puppy Linux?

Thank you the Help

For a full factory reset why not just reinstall from scratch?

I download Puppy Linux for a bootable USB. Puppy Linux was working fine, until I log off and save the file. Somehow when I save the file it got encryption. Now everytime I load puppy it ask for a password.

When I type in the password this what happen next.
"Password: can't mount file press ENTER to try again or any other Char then ENTER for f.s check then try again, or for developers type 'quit' to drop to console ......"

Then when you type in quit this pop up.


/bin/sh:can't access tty:job control turn off

The USB that I'm using to boot Puppy Linux is a PNY 8 G. The laptop that I want to use is Dell, XPS M140 Year 2005
I have try deleting Puppy Linux, then format the USB again, then reinstall Puppy. But each time I boot Puppy it ask for the same password.

This is my very first time ever to mess around in any kinda Linux. Any Idea on how to fix this ? How would I delete a save file? Because everytime I load up a fresh copy of puppy, the same file keep showing up. If you need any more details just ask.
Thank you for the help.
