Considering it's size, maybe better to stick with the system default.

Actually I just tried to reboot and it rebooted pretty quickly, however now I don't have any ethernet or wifi connection (network wizard does not show any network interfaces). And also I cannot shutdown the machine. I'm posting this now from another computer.

In PupScan >> PCI interfaces.. your ethernet and, or network controllers should be listed.

Copy'n paste, or run: lsmod which should show if their drivers are loaded.

For instance, my controller utilizes the b44 driver. Hence:
Code:
lsmod | grep b44

Returns:
Code:
b44                    19033  0
ssb                    29373  1 b44
mii                     2650  1 b44

Your primary connection type?

primary connection is eth0. Its a rather large file and I'm posting here from another computer so copy n paste ain't an option. Tell me what I'm looking for in pupscan>>pci interfaces

Ethernet. It'll look similar..
Code:
DESCRIPTION: Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401 100Base-T
VENDOR: 14e4  DEVICE: 4401
KERNEL DRIVER:  b44
KERNEL MODULE:  b44

Module and, or driver's OK.

If you run: ifconfig from a shell, is eth0 listed?

I managed to find the module name for eth0 from the pupscan>>interfaces list, and then to load that module. Now the internet works again, however still cannot shutdown and have to redo the load module procedure again on reboot.

You can place a line like this in /etc/rc.d/rc.local:
Code:
modprobe your_module

For shutdown, let's see another of these:
Code:
cat /var/log/messages | grep -i error

How is it you disabled the screensaver?

Code:
cat /var/log/messages | grep -i error


no output from the above command.

And now I don't have any sound and the volume control in the taskbar at bottom of screen has disappeared. Great! this is totally messing up my puppy

Searching with the alsa sound wizard does not find any supported pnp or pci cards.

I disabled the screensaver by going to tool at menu>desktop>desktopsettings>screensaver control
