Subject description: how do i change boot options?
 

Hi,

I picked up a Netier xl1000 thin client computer of ebay. It has Puppy 4.1.2 installed and it worked great until i saved a session to the hard disk. After saving the session and trying to reboot I see a message that says "forced coying to ram" then when X starts the background is black and I cannot open any programs. It would appear that I have no usable RAM left.

I think I traced the problem back to a boot option "pfix=copy." Based on what I've been able to find out here on the forum I think i need to change that to "pfix=noram."

My questions are:

1. Is my theory correct; do i need to change the boot options?
2. How do I change the boot options?

About the system:
Netier Net Xpress XL1000
250Mhz AMD-K6 3D processor
128MB RAM
The harddrive is a 256MB compact flash card in an internal IDE/ATA adapter. (soon to be upgraded to 4Gig)

Puppy is installed in "SuperFloppy" mode.

I have no boot-splash screen or any place to enter boot options at startup.

No GRUB or LILO. Puppy is the only operating system.

I hope I have given you all the information you need to help me find an answer.
Thanks

I did a fresh install to fix the problem I was having then when given the option to save the session at shutdown I selected "save to file" instead of "save to hard drive." All is well, i'm just lucky i didn't have any important personal files on the drive.
