but I can't figure out which file to download on the site.
You want to go HERE
You are looking for the files with a .iso extension.
I'm hoping IE will let you access an ftp site.If not I know firefox will.
You want to download "Puppy-1.0.7-mozilla.iso" 60.5MB . OR(this is pretty cool) get the "Puppy-multisession-1.0.7-mozilla.iso" 60.5MB.You use a cd r/w to burn this one.When you are finished using the multisession puppy disc it gives you the option of saving your settings,bookmarks,cookies,etc by re-burning the disc each time you use it effectively creating your own personalized puppy Linux os!
I have been using puppy a lot lately.It is packaged with a program to make your own personel live linux cd.I think that will be awesome.
Now to make the disc.You NEED to burn a disc image.NOT as data for them to work.If I remember correctly in win using nero,when the burn dialog opens click "tools"up at the top and choose "burn cd image".I use k3b in linux.CDRoast works well also.
Whatever burner software you use make sure you burn as "disc image" or "iso=9660".Same thing.This holds true for the linux install disc sets also.
If you have any problems,just ask.
