I've just taken a strong interest in using Linux because I just found out about Linux Live and learned that I didn't have to install a whole new operating system to be able to use it.
I decided to give Puppy a go and downloaded the Puppy 2.14 ISO file. Then I gave myself a headache reading instructions while trying to figure out how to turn that file into a usable CD.
Much to my surprise it wasn't all that hard and I was able to figured out how to get my CD burner to burn it to a CD and was able to make myself a CD without breaking anything or crashing my system.
Now comes my first problem... getting connected to the internet.
I have a Westell DSL modem for connecting to the Internet and I have absolutely no idea how to tell Puppy what to look for or where to look for it. According to the instructions the connection wizard is supposed to have two option buttons, one for Dial-up and another for DSL\Broadband but it doesn't.
It has the dial-up and a couple of other buttons but nothing for DSL so I can't follow the instructions that I'm reading.
Can anyone tell me how to get the web connection thingy set so that I can get to the Internet?
Another point of concern to me is the firewall. Q: Is the firewall in Puppy a two way firewall like ZoneAlarm or a one way firewall like the one in Windows?
