I am now stuck ...

I am on step 3a. Mount Drives step 3, which is "USB flash drives usually automatically mount upon boot, but click the "usbdrv" tab and make sure it is mounted."

I have no idea where that is .. I have looked and dont see it .... :(

I clicked on the mount icon and clicked on "mount for drive but don't see the usb to mount it

Also I do have an external drive .. it sayd to mount it now at 3a step 5 ... does that mean to attach my external drive via usb to my tower??

You will not loose your Data.
Did you install a USB stick into a front USB socket before booting to Puppy?

No I did not ... it did not instruct me to ... once I got to part 3a step 5 it instructed me to connect the external that it was the time to do so.

Down at the bottom left you should see all the drives that are identified by Linux. If you are booting from a USB it should already be there. There should also be a icon that looks like the HD. The important question is if the kb and mouse are working at this point in Linux?

Gday.
Sorry about the confusion. I am running a different flavour of Puppy so the desktops are slightly different.
I will download the same one as you are using and set up on another computer and will run it and get back to you with instructions.
Please exit from Puppy.
shut down the computer.
Remove you external USB Data drive.

Back at last, sorry it took so long, (Puppy Lupa) not a very friendly user interface.

1. Plug in your external USB backup drive, do not switch on yet.
2. Boot to the Puppy disk.
3. At the bottom left you should see one or more HDD icons, first one = sda1, if a second one = sda2.
4. Hover your mouse pointer over each in turn, The files system and size will be displayed.
5. Choose the biggest with a ntfs files system > left click once.
A window will open displaying the content of the Windows XP drive, you can scroll up and down to see the contents. we are only interested in two icons, Documents and setting. Files.
6. Left click once on Documents and setting, > left click once on your user name,
Can you see your Folders i.e. My Doc, My pictures, etc.???

Edit to remove instruction #1.
