Hi everybody,i am new to this forum and linux so please help me

I have an old laptop,which has several problems.
Whenever i look in the device manager,i see alot of stuff that needs troubleshooting including not having internet.

I asked a question at yahoo saying if i could fix all the errors just by changing my os and the answer is a yes
I am not that very techy so I am having problems on how to install linux lucid puppy
I chose lucid puppy because my laptop is a very low-end one,it keeps on not respongding

So I am asking you guys a favor:
Please help me install lucid puppy,a step by step guide would be good
And also please give me the download link for the iso

Helping me is much appreciated,thanks

My laptop specs are:
1.6 ghz pentium dual core
512 mb of ram
Intel GMA 950
Have almost 15 gb free space on both c and d drives

It IS very slow so if you guys have opinions about install other linux please give me instructions on how to install it

Hi and welcome to LQ!
Basically, installing Puppy (or any other distro) involves (a) downloading a disk image. (b) Burning that disk image onto a disk (c) booting your computer with the disk in the disk drive. (d) following the instructions that appear on the screen.
The details for doing this with Puppy can be found here.
Good luck and give a shout if there's a problem.

Puppy is not supposed to be installed like a regular distro, and may have security problems if it is. Normally it loads into the memory from the CD or USB stick, but you can (safely) load from a file on the hard drive — what they call a frugal install. So, the obvious catch is that you need a reasonable amount of memory to run it: a minimum of 512MB is recommended.

If you tell us about your laptop, we can offer a little more help. For example, good choices are
1GB and a P4: Linux Mint Mate version
512MB and a P3: Salix
256MB and a P3: AntiX MX version
128MB (just!) or a P2: AntiX
