I am helping a friend switch over to Linux. I was setting up Puppy on her computer and ran into a couple of problems.

Computer: HP compaq nc8230
Puppy linux 5.2.8
Kernel 2.6.33.2

Here are the problems:
1. Multimedia Keys (ie volume) keys are not working
2. The "click" by tapping on the track pad is not working.

Any thoughts?

Hi Eguzki- Welcome to Puppy!

Are you running this 5.28?

For 2- rt-clk >> setup >> mouse/keyboard >> touchpad >> tapping and move "tap time" to 220.

This make a difference?

Re: multimedia.
Jemimah cared about such for her EEEPC so maybe searching
for posts by her can help out? She is into Saluki now and I have
not followed that one so don't know if she has looked into such keys.

I would use the search link I have in my signature

Maybe try Sven.
Or maybe it is a driver issue...

I don't use a laptop, but I think there are several things that can solve this on different laptops, including:
- adding a particular option to Xorg.conf
- manually loading a particular kernel module
Try googling those particular problems for that particular laptop.
