Hi Funyson,

Welcome to LQ.
Please mention your problem in brief in the subject, so as to get more members attention, instead of 'Please Help Me!'

For your problem, can you check of puppy Linux supports your mouse ?
Post the details for the mouse and version of puppy Linux here..

Known issue. Remember that VPC is a Microsoft product and those guys aren't too fond of Linux. You are so much better off using a virtual machine that has a bit more respect for open source software, such as VMWare or Virtualbox. Still, it appears that there is a workaround for the mouse thing: http://www.nettakeaway.com/tp/articl...-on-virtual-pc
