Yes Puppy Yes!

Just saying, I've tried SUSE, Fedora, Mandriva....
Puppy is the first Linux distro I ever got working. It was SO easy. Easy as burning a cd, and I heard about it from one of my favourite musicians: Mr. Glenn K. who apparently uses it to resurrect the dead! (computers, that is)
Puppy rocks! If you want an easy, free, legal way to use the hardware you purchased, try it!
That's all I have to say right now, if only I put enough effort in to have it use my HDD, I wouldn't have had to try anything else.
Glad it's finally included here! Really surprised this forum hasn't been here before now.

Will Puppy coexist in a dual boot environment?

Dual Booting

Short answer is yes. Since there are so many options for running Puppy in a dual boot environment it would be best if you check out the links in the sticky at the top of this page. Your options include everything from running with the live CD, frugal/poor man's install, to full hard drive installs. A search of the threads on the main forum and the Wiki should give you all you need to get started.

Forget Lilo and Grub

Change your BIOS to boot from CD/DVD and then HD
- it probably already has this sequence

Now if Puppy is in the CD/DVD - Puppy runs
If not the hard drive runs

Puppy saves its settings in one file on the Hard disk
and boots faster from CD than other distros or Windows do from Hard drive

It then runs faster - all the programs are in Ram

When a new Puppy comes out - at least 6-8 a year
you burn a CD (you can do that from Puppy with a simple
program especially written for it) and have a new operating system

Your settings are already on the hard disk

This is Linux the way it should be.
