How do I initialize things on boot-up
I'm using the PUPPY+Enhanced Machine Controller live CD as a start. My primary purpose in working with this OS is to run EMC to drive a CNC Sherline milling machine.
I'm using a Sony PCG-F430 notebook computer with 192 Mbytes of memory. I've created a FAT-32 partition (first partition) and a Linux EXT2 partition (second partition) on the hard drive. (BTW, the hard drive is 40 GBytes - not the 6 GBytes that originally came with the machine).
I'm at the point where I've loaded and initialized GRUB to boot either Windows 98 (first partition) or Puppy (second partition). It all comes up and seems to work.
Here's where I'm having some difficulties:
1. I'd like to have PUPPY mount the first partition of my hard drive and also at least check whether or not I've got a USB thumb drive. Note that, I can manually mount both the first partition and hard drive.
2. I'd like some way of setting up several aliases whenever I execute the console application (a windowing application)
I'm guessing that there's a configuration file somewhere that will allow me to set up these preferences. I'd appreciate knowing where it is located and how to change it to add the features that I'd like.
