Hi,

I am new with Puppy, not new with Linux. What is the difference between these two iso-files?

I want to install on 266MHz with 256MB.

Thanks in advance. Regards Svgt

"Retro" Puppy. Puppy 2.16 (and earlier) uses the 2.6.18.1 kernel. Puppy 2.17 uses the 2.6.21.5 kernel, whereas Puppy 3.00 and 3.01 use the 2.6.21.7 kernel. The problem is that the kernel underwent major structural changes between the 2.6.18.x and 2.6.21.x series and some people find that Puppy will not boot (or had other hardware-related issues) with the later series. Well, a couple of people anyway. Although this is a small group, I decided to support them by offering the latest Puppy but with the older kernel.

Cheers Smile
