Hello all - help appreciated with this one please - I am new to Puppy and am having difficulty installing a usb wireless adapter. Its disc doesn't run when I insert it - I want to run its autorun.exe which I think is an ms dos executable. Puppy prompts me to tell it what app to use to run it - that's as far as I have got. Help please! Thanks

Using the disk is just for getting it to run on Windows.
With Puppy, insert usb wireless, click the connect icon, go from there.
