Installing Puppy Linux to your Hard Drive

Filed under
Linux

My love affair with Puppy is becoming quite torrid! I've recently installed it on an older IBM T21 which was running like a dog (nyuck, nyuck) with Ubuntu on it. Puppy is like a breath of fresh air - fast, smooth and easy to use. It’s turned this old laptop into a machine I can really use at work.

Here’s a step by step covering how to install and update Puppy to a hard drive.

First, download Puppy and burn it onto a CD. From there you want to boot into the liveCD. In IBMland that’s accomplished by hitting the F12 key when the computer first boots, and choosing a boot device (the CD).

You’ll see Puppy doing a bunch of stuff, and then It’ll start asking you questions.

First, you’ll be asked to choose your keyboard layout. In my case, having a QWERTY keyboard and being in the US, I choose US Qwerty.

Next it’s time to set up Xorg.

Full Story.
