Thank you for responding, Wu2wei! Sorry for my imprecisions...
My keyboard looks almost like this:
except that mine has on the top 12 other buttons for controlling multimedia (play, pause, stop, etc.), volume controls & navigation control buttons (menu, search, shop, etc.). Spent more than 35 mins. trying to find the exact model but to no avail. To be clearer, it has the number pad at the right hand side, right at left of it has the navigation buttons (left, right, up & down keys) & on top of those the usual Insert, Delete, Home, End, etc. keys. It shows it's a Model RT 3604.
An example of the characters I'm talking about follows:
---"This is only a test, memo-style, short writing for clarity.
“Esto es sólo una prueba, estilo memorandum, corto escrito por razón de clarificación.“
Other characters of interest are: á, é, í, ñ, ú, ü, ¿ and ¡. Uppercase also apply..."
This was written in a website dedicated to translations to spanish.
I understood from your post that you're using a German language configured keyboard, am I right?
What I wanted to say was that I'm planning to create a multiboot cd soon, it should/will include the last stable version of Puppy, but I might have misspelled it & called it an Upgrade instead of an Update.
In relation to my last lines, I want to know if, in my no-hdd condition I might benefit somehow by performing some configurations in the proposed oss prior to burning/preparing to burn the cd? As an ex., choosing my preferred destop walpaper (discarding some that I won't never use), keyboard configuration, possibly deleting/substituting some applications included in the iso file, etc..
Thanks for any tips/info!
PS. In relation to the title of this post, precisely, what I wanted to know was if in the referred os in the same equipment I could obtain the characters by using an <Alt> + special characters (apostrophe, tilde, etc,) key + character combination & with PL 5.1* I can't then there's something changed, not configured or not included within this last os: what is it? And, where I can put it, once I know what it is, for obtaining the same results as before?
