I want to change my cursor - pretty simple huh?

Go to Desktop ->pcur
Told to d/l themes
Find themes D/L with dependancies about 10 files ??
restart x
pcur

reboot
same stuff

I just want to change the colour of my cursor from black to white .

I think you got the wrong themes.
Should only need to download and install one theme package.

In the Puppy Package Manager (PPM)
Search for cursor_themes-1-1 in the puppy-noarch repository.
Download and install.
Now Pcur should open with a list of cursors to select.

Or download and install the pet package from the puppy repository.

Your downloaded cursor theme should just be a directory (containing the images in a sub-directory). Place it in the hidden /root/.icons directory and make a symlink named "default" pointing to it. Restart X.
Here you can see the "crystalgold" theme which has a yellow cursor.
