I normally use Ubuntu, however I've started to experiment with Puppy 2.16 on an older pc. I love it! The only problems I've been having is booting with a multi-session cd-r. I downloaded puppy on an single session cd and it booted normally. I then downloaded puppy and burned it to a different cd-r using puppy's iso burner as a multi session cd. I shut the computer down and restarted with the multi-session cd and again it booted just fine.
After setting up my desktop and personal settings, I shut down and chose save to cd when prompted. The next day when I tried to boot from cd, windows booted normally. When I shut windows down and booted from my single session cd, puppy came up tail wagging.
Is there something I missed in burning a multi-session cd or during the shut down?
Also, any tips on cofiguring the sound? I can't get any audio on the three computers I've tried.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
It would help if we had some hardware specs. Go to terminal or konsole, which ever Puppy uses and as root type lspci. This should give us the sound card info. Before doing this though I presume you have worked the sound mixer over and made sure the output switches are turned on and the mutes unchecked. As for saving to cd when you shut down I don't understand what you mean.

What I mean is that when you log off of Puppy, you are prompted to either save to disk, cd-rom or don't save changes. I am lead to believe that when you use a multi-session cd or dvd that you can save settings, files, ect to your cd/dvd-r just like you would a hard-drive. I could be wrong about that.
As far as the audio part of my problem I'll check my sound card and settings like you suggested. I'm still new to Puppy (and Linux in general) so I probably missed something.
I'm not familiar with Puppy so that's why I ask, I'm reasonably new myself and still learning everyday. As an after thought, that save to disk may be for -rw disks.
Glad to see I'm not the only one still learning Puppy. I checked with puppyos.com to see if I misread part of the multi-session cd instructions. It says that you can use cd-r, dvd-r, cd-rw, or dvd-rw. It goes on to say that cd-rws are more expensive and that cd-rs were just as good because you can still record to them even after you have closed the cd at the end of a session. I may have just mis understood.
