I expected the installation of "Lucid Puppy" to be something like my experience with Ubuntu and Debian. With those previous linux distributions after I ran the installation from a CD, I could remove the CD and reboot. This was not the case with Lucid Puppy. After I ran (what I thought was) the installation, it seemed that the whole Operating System was in RAM and when I rebooted I found that the previous installed OS on the hard drive came up. The next thing I did was this. After I installed Lucid Puppy, I ran a suggested setup routine which seemed to be successful. The final screen said this: GRUB INSTALL SUCCESS ================== GRUB was successfully installed on the MBR of /dev/sda. You should check and edit the '/boot/grub/menu.lst' file on 'dev/sda1', if needed. You may want to change the location 'boot/umlinuz', and/or options passed to any Linux kernal listed there. What should I do and how do I do it? Now when I reboot I get a blue menu that looks like this: Linux (on /dev/sda1) Install GRUB to floppy disk (on /dev/fd0) Install GRUB to Linux partition (on /dev/sda1) - For help press 'c', then type: 'help' - For usage examples, type: 'cat /boot/grub/usage.txt At the bottm of the screen there are suggestions how to edit files. Unix and Linux is new to me. I hope I can get some direction here with better experienced people. I would think that installing any software would cause that installation to be placed on the users hard drive. I would expect that that would be the defaut option and doing otherwise might be diffiicult or impossible.
