Hi,

I've just installed puppy but I'm logged in as root and I thought that I should be running as a less privileged user to be on the safe side? But, I can't seem to find where I would set up that new user.

Help and advice is much appreciated.
nictu.

Basically, Puppy runs as root.
However, you might want to read this:

I'm not sure whether 'fido' non-root is in the latest Wary (5.1.4.1).
