I was wanting to try Puppy Linux on my old Compaq Presario V5000, but since I posted i just went out and bought a few CD-Rs for cheap. Thing is, I think either a) the motherboard is fried or b) the hard drive is dead. Happened a year ago or so. Whether it's XP or Puppy, the boot screen will load up and then it will install drivers and everything, and then just sit with a black screen and a blinking "_" for good. So, I don't think I need to worry about trying to see if it works on USB. If you have any suggestions for my old computer though, that'd be much help. Thanks.
