Puppy, trying to save session in Vista


Booted Puppy 2.17 from CD but when I shut down & wanted to save settings, saw a failure listed but it all goes by to quickly to read.
Also tried Puppy 2.16 & it said something like action not allowed.
Newer computer with Vista, wonder if vista is causing the problems & how to fix.
Are there some commands to freeze the screen during shut down to be able to read what is not occurring? I tried Pause/Break, Ctrl q & s, but it goes by so quickly & have not been able to stop it.
Thanks.

The most likely problem is that the drive is formatted to ntfs. GNU/Linux does not natively write to an ntfs partition, you need the ntfs-3g package. That situation is due to change with the next major kernel release.

Puppy has ntfs-3g. But puppy won't mount a NTFS partition R/W if it wasn't shutdown cleanly. Make sure you didn't hibernate windows.
