I have been running Puppy ver 1.08 from a multisession DVD. I just downloaded the latest version and created a new multisession DVD.

Do I have to start from scratch in setting up the new version or is there a way to coppy old settings?

When you start-up with the new multisession DVD it should prompt you if you are upgrading from an existing multisession. If you say yes, it will give you directions to transfer the data and settings.

I screwed up!

I had done the download and created the multiple session on a different computer. Then booted the other computer with Puppy DVD. At this time I did get a message asking me if this was a new installation and I said 'yes'.

When I exited, the changes got saved to the DVD so when I Booted in my other computer I never got asked if it was an upgrade hence old settkings never got copied to new DVD.

No great loss and I guess I could burn another DVD.

Thanks for the help.

As the price of DVD-RW isn't very high anymore, I only use DVD-RW.

I burned a new Multisession DVD, booted it, and said it was an updated session.

When asked I inserted the DVD for ver 1.08 and there was a lot of activity saying data was being saved to 'root'. Then it asked me for a password. Didn't have a clue and after trying any I could think of (without success) I'm again asking for help.

Ver 1.09 works fine when I say it's a new installation.

Isn't the password for root 'root'?

Puppy has no password.
When it starts asking, just hit enter.
But usually it is an indicator something went wrong.

OK. Here is what is happening. Messgages I can see on the screen above line asking for my password ('root' and enter didn't work),

cannot create regular dile '/root/.etc/rc.d/rc.sysinst'

cannot create regular file '/root/.etc/rc.reboot-cd'

cannot create regular file '/root/.etc/rc.reboot-hd'

chown:/root/spot:no such file or directory

I think there was another sating something about root but it timed out and screen scrolled down before I could write it down.

I think the problem involves the pup001 file but I don't have any idea what to do.

I burned a new DVD and everything works just fine if I say it's a new file.

Does this info help you experts to diagnose my problem? If not, I'll just keep using 1.08 whoich works fine.
