Just bought Puupy Linux Variety Pack now what?

I'm anxious to run Puppy Linux and bought Puppy Linux Variety Pack from Amazon. It arrived with no instructions. What do I need to do?

This Linux business is new to me.

The first version of Linux that I ever ran (Mandrake 8), I bought at the store. Luckily it had a thick instruction manual with it.

@CHastorf, I have never run Puppy, but generally you start out by booting from the cdrom. You may have to mess with your BIOS settings to get your computer to boot from a cd. Let us know if you run into problems or have questions.

I hope Barry Kauler gets something donated back to him via the "Variety Pack"

Kudos to you for choosing Puppy Linux - it isn't the easiest distro for a newcomer but you will learn more using and installing this than you would Ubuntu
