puppy-1.0.8-mozilla user/password ???
 
I am trying to install but it's asking for a user and password --- I have no idea what to use (maybe root -- but what's the password ???)

Passwords..
 
Allen,
Since Puppy is a single user system there really are no passwords as such. When Puppy requests a password it usually means that there is a problem in the boot sequence. Quite often it is a fault with the CD you are using. Some things to look at/try - first check the MD5 checksum against the ISO image to make sure you have a good download. Another common source of problems is that when you burned your CD you may have used to high a speed. When you burn any ISO image to a CD it is best to use the slowest possible speed. It also pays to use a name brand, quality CD - the no name cheapies often cause problems. If this doesn't clear up the problem get back to us here with some specifics about the system you used to burn the CD - operating system, type of burning software, system specifications etc. Hope this helps,

Thanks, I'll continue to try to get it to work, but I appreciate your reply.

Sometimes the password prompt comes up because there is not enough memory. How much RAM do you have? And what version are you using? Puppy 2.01 will run fairly happily in 64Mb, but 1.08 and 1.09 are somewhat more memory hungry.

More info can be found in the forum linked from

Best of luck,
Mark
