Gimp? Surely you jest! Mtpaint does everything I'll ever need, thank you very much. And I never divide by zero ... Wink

It seems like puppy was made on a machine just like mine. Everything wo,rked right "out of the box".

Toshiba M35X-S311 Centrino laptop

768mb memory (added 256mb to original)
60gig hd
Pentium M 1.5gh
Intel 2200 wifi
SmartLink AMRMO modem (winmodem)

I use the liveCD 3.01 with a Cruzer 4gb flash drive for the settings.
The winmodem went bad so had to buy an external modem:
Actiontec EX560LKU external USB/Serial 56k hardware modem. (25 bucks on ebay [modem $8.99 + $15 S&Handling])
I had a little trouble setting the new modem up. This site explains the setup:

Dell Dimension 4400

OS= Windows XP Home SP3, and Frugal install Puppy Linux 4

CPU=Intel P4 1.6 Ghz (although Puppy says it's 1.4 Ghz)

Sound Card= Sound Blaster LIVE! LS

Video Card= Nvidia G-Force 5500 PCI video card.

1 GB of RAM (I forgot the type)

2 Hard drives, the 1st drive(160 GB) has 2 partitions, and the Second, (120GB) only one. Both are Western Digital.

4 USB slots, 1.1 (slow)

Sony CDRW CRX230E CD/RW ROM drive.

I have a HP PSC 1315v printer, but only use it in Windows for now, maybe until I figure out how to make it work in Puppy. Cool


(I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 too)

I've since been thru another phase. My "fast" now runs Dingo primarily although it also has my experimental learning Puppy using 3.01 as a base, HurtMePlenty, and Muppy on it as well, all frugally installed. My slow computer still has a stripped down 3.01 on it as the cd drive seems to not work well. We have an e-machine that runs windows but my wife wanted a distro for all the young children to use when they come and visit so I have tried TEEN, Pupeez and now HappyLinux (an amazing, but un-popular Puppy derivative) because my kids need flash to play games online and so far Happy is the only one that comes ready to go. The e-machine has 512 megs of ram with about an 800 mhz processor. All the puppys I've tried has run flawlessly and very fast on even the e-machine, although I must use Xvesa on it. So far, every computer I've attempted to run Puppy with, I've been successful, not me so much as Puppy has just worked.

So I have Puppy running on a computer with 192 megs ram, 512 megs ram, and 1 gig ram.

Computer:

IBM Thinkpad 600X
CPU: Pentium III 500 MHz
RAM: 310 MB
Ethernet: None
Modem: PCI-modem (runs)
Wireless: Nintendo Wi-Fi Adapter (runs flawlessly through rt2750 module, but scan is a bit weak).
video: onboard (runs xorg well, runs xvessa okay)
sound: onboard (sounds fine).
Display: 1200x768 works fine.

Puppy:
I'm running Dingo, but I switched to icewm (xwin icewm), and I commented out all references to rox in the startup script to lower overhead. Puppy has made this old workhorse run faster than my Celeron-D 2.7 GHz, 768 MB Pavillion notebook. I just wish I had a second USB port so I could access external storage while online (external hdd doesn't have external power, so splitting it with a hub doesn't get enough power).

You can buy powered usb hubs that solve that problem, They are hard to find, not like the newer ones for usb2. But these come with a power adapter.
look on ebay you might find one.

Toshiba Satellite 2210CDT
Celeron 500mb
61mb Ram
3.1gb HDD
Puppy Linux 4

Amazingly this once useless (for anything newer than win98) machine is now being used by a complete newbie (my wifes uncle) with very good results.
Basically he'd had a little experience of windoze xp, but not a lot, so the opportunity to get his old lappy up and running with Puppy 4 was too good to pass up.
