Question puppy/guppy


OK. Now I downloaded puppu and got it as tar.gz2. Could anyone be kind enough to show me how to proceed??? After this I have to get Guppy, but I think that will be a piece of cake. Am I right??

I cannot find any "read me" files... what the heck, why is this so difficult compared to (you know what)...? I still have to transfer files from my Topfield and remake them so my daughter can watch them from her DVD player, but of course, that is a different story...

Since you are using ubuntu, why don't you use the deb file?

Kind regards

I think you're trying to run Puppy from within another system? Or compile it yourself?
Why can't you simply download the ISO and boot from it?
