Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When you installed Puppy did you not install a bootloader? It is possible to install a bootloader to an existing operating without using the installer but at this stage of the game I think that the easiest thing for you to do is to install Puppy again and this time install grub as your bootloader during the install.
Hi, I have installed Puppy 4 onto my ageing Toshiba Laptop, successfully I believe!
Have you done a full installation? (If so, I've never done one, so I can't say where grub comes into the process.) Have you looked at the links on Barry Kauler's site about how to configure grub? http://www.puppylinux.com/hard-puppy.htm
Thanks for the info, I am looking at this http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/linuxcommand.org/lts0010.php, I am looking at it slow time - to get to grips with the command line basics, before I look at the Grub info. It really is quite hard to adjust from Windoze.
Although after many different distros would not install, I managed to get Backtrack2 to install and boot of its own accord - with no grub!?! Not sure I like BT2 - but it is a way into the command line at least!
after booting from cd (puppy pfix=ram),create a partision of ext2 or 3 using Gparted partison manager remember the partison, install from puppy universal installer,after the installation grub boot loader will start, use default configuration, when it asks for, install to MBR, you can edit the grub at /boot/grub/menu.lst. confirm or change the title of you puppy & the harddisk partion (hdo,0) for c drive in windows ,(hdo,1) d drive etc
reboot ,save the configuration to your linux partion
on reboot, you will be presented with option to boot to windows, or linux
