Just spotted Rerwin's post for autodetecting 3G modems

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=37828

I am in Germany, currently, & brought my IBM T30 lappy with me & an Icon 3G option modem, is available as a loaner from my hospitalized friend

Silly/lazy question, because I haven't tried or researched this, is -

Can a live CD Puppy install such a package as Rerwin's .pet?
[for download, fortunately a wifi link is available to me using a linksys usb device connected to a hospital wifi hotspot [as a matter of interest the linksys device uses the railink rt73 driver in windoze]

However this would be useful on the road Very Happy

Often wondered, but never tried it as I'm a broadband user at home & can download/burn/use anything with ease

Abroad is not so easy - like being a noob all over again Embarassed

Aitch,

yes...if you have a pup_save or running puppy in multisession mode.

Multisession is just like a live CD except you can install stuff, and changed settings persist.

Couldn't you also remaster Puppy and include the new program?

Aitch,
I also have a TP T30 and see that it has only a CD/DVD reader, so a multisession CD is not an option. The dotpet requires use of a pup_save file on the hard drive. Installing 4.1.2 also requires use of the hard drive. What else is on the drive? If it is Win... then you will need the Lin'n'WinNewB package to hook in the booting of puppy.

The idea is to download the iso using your puppy 2.14R CD, then mount it (by clicking on it). In any partition, create a top-level directory: puppy412 and copy three files into it: image.gz, pup_412.sfs, vmlinuz.

If Windows is you main OS, get Lin'n'Win from here:
http://www.icpug.org.uk/national/linnwin/step00-linnwin.htm
and follow its directions. That makes a bootable frugal installation without impacting Windows (other that editing its boot.ini file). Edit the menu.lst so it contains:
Code:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
  title Puppy 4.1.2 (on /dev/hda1)
  root (hd0,0)
  kernel /puppy412/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd psubdir=puppy412
  initrd /puppy412/initrd.gz
 # Linux bootable partition config ends
This assumes you use the C: drive for Puppy.

That's what I have set up on my T30. During operation, only the pup_save file gets written to. So Windows is safe.
