Hi, I'm new to these whole Linux OS scene. I'm trying to replace WinXP with Puppy but I'm lost currently.

System A (Headless P2P download machine 24/7):
- HDD1 = OS + p2p client software
- HDD2 = Root folder (Downloads) shared through 'Simple networking with read/write permissions. All download files goes here.

System B (Normal desktop)
- Use web client to control the P2P client on system A
- Periodically move downloaded files from system A

So far these are what I've done:
1. Install puppy to thumbdrive and replace HDD1 of system A. It now show up as 'sda2' on Puppy desktop.
2. HDD2 of system B show up as 'sda1' on puppy linux.
3. Run console with the following commands:
#adduser -h /mnt/sda1 TestUser

4. Enter a password twice.
5. Run Pure-FTP

So far I can only browse/copy the files/folder that reside on system A from system B with winxp but I don't have permission to move/delete the file/folder. Please help.

You need a log in with a user with admin privelidges.....
root and woof woof would give that or you can edit /etc/passwd to give the new user admin access .. look at the root entry for the pattern
