it worked, grub came up and booted up the os like it should

but doesn't work the way i thought it would
skype only runs for a few seconds, i have to re-enter the wep for the wireless network every time i start it up and i can't use the word processor that it came with it, i also want to know how to run pidgin in it i hear that it might run smoother than everything else

setting up

Congratulations baronobeefdip.

You succeeded in getting Puppy to run.
Hopefully you now stick with it and set it up the way you want it to.
All the items in your last post need to be fixed by you. They are already answered somewhere on the various Puppy forums. Use this search http://wellminded.com/puppy/pupsearch.html
to find your answers.
Your post is too unspecific to give you good answers, but a logical selection of terms in the above search engine will lead you to answers yourself.
Just these hints: If you want any application to run at start up, you must set a link in /root/Startup.
You could use OpenOffice as a sfs instead of Abiword. OO is available for Puppy here
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/OpenOffice
Any other applicaton you need, use the search above. On a frugal install you can utilize pets or sfs for additional applications.

just got it working instead of installing all of the grub files to a directory on the HD i installed it to the master boot record mbr *i'm knida getting good at this hitting the books on this stuff is really paying off) i also made a SWAP partition that is half the size of the ram and when i restarted the system, took out the live cd and waited for it to boot ub again the moment of truth comes, i saw the grub menu and i told it to boot from the sda1 (or was it sda2 it kinda changes since it really depepnds on which partition i write first) but heres is one little problem (after solving this i think i might be done

how do i get it to save all of my wep codes the keys for the wirless network because everytime i start it up again i am having to put in the wep all over again, i share this computer so that is a real major inconvenience all help is real appreciated

note: this is just a little experiment for whenever i need to use this distro in my class

Needed additions to this thread:
  1. To completely load Puppy Linux into RAM requires 128MB RAM.
  2. Puppy Linux will use the same amount of RAM whether run as full hard drive install or save file install.
  3. How to use SFS files with full hard drive.
  4. How to use SFS files with save file install.
  5. OpenOffice SFS
  6. Puppy Linux has a fully automated install facility for most situations including installing as sole OS or dual boot with other operating systems and configures GRUB too.

Upgrade to 4.3.1 and use Attym or compile pidgin yourself.

That statement will get you no help at all. Find someone else to do your homework for you.

PS: Posting off topic questions within your thread causes confusion and reduces your probability of getting an answer. In future post questions as separate threads.

PS: You are very needy. I recommend you increase your resourcefulness.

The link I gave is directly to the Puppy Linux forum.
Incredibly unlikely the forum has a virus.

Bobbio. I clicked on that link again and the site open without the trojan virus. I was going to do a screenshot and post the picture. Sorry about the post. I looked at that site earlier today. It is one good tutorial for installing puppy. Again sorry. Thanks for the message back. Chuck

No problem:

I saw a post on the puppy forum today from another person that had
an avast trojan warning.
This seems to happen to people with Windows and IE on different
sites quite often.

Using a live linux cd (like Puppy) and running in ram is the safest
way to surf.

Using Firefox or Seamonkey in Windows seems to eliminate a lot of
weird popups.
