====Microsoft Windows User How To ""(WinXP)""====
Are you a frustrated user of Windows XP (or even Windows 98)? Do you want to work with a phenomenally fast OS Operating System? You may have heard about the alternative, often free, operating system, **Linux**, but are totally inexperienced in computer technology. Can you use Linux and especially **Puppy Linux** (Puppy Linux is phenomenally fast because it runs entirely in RAM on most PC's)? The answer is most probably:

In Linux there are plenty of OpenSource music programs and with them you can do a lot of things. Some of the most popular are:
- Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) - software for recording and editing sounds
- Mozilla Songbird (http://www.getsongbird.com/) - open music player similar to iTunes to manage your audio collection easily and effectively
- XMMS and XMM2 (http://www.xmms.org/) - free software audio player very similar to Winamp
- Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Linux_audio_software for a complete list and description of audio software for Linux

Are you a frustrated user of Windows XP (or even Win98 Windows 98)? Do you want to work with a phenomenally fast OS Operating System? You may have heard about the alternative, often free, operating system, **Linux**, but are totally inexperienced in computer technology. Can you use Linux and especially **PuppyLinux Puppy Linux** (Puppy Linux is phenomenally fast because it runs entirely in RAM on most PC's)? The answer is most probably:
You can find basic information in this wiki, on other Puppy Linux sites, and also at the http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=4701 Puppy Forum (great for all your specific questions not covered elsewhere) and, of course, in this section designed especially for users new to Linux and specifically Puppy Linux.
~~- Type of file system used. (FAT, the old LongFileName long name file system used by Microsoft Windows 95 & 98 or NTFS commonly used by Microsoft WindowsXP)
~~- Amount of temporary storage space available in the RAM (Random Access Memory) of your PC. (e.g. 128 MB)
~~- Type of mouse (The use of a mouse is necessary in Linux's GraphicSystem graphical environment, //i.e. GUI: Graphical User Interface.//)
~~- Type of connection with the internet Internet. (Modem, DSL, or LAN are the most often used.)
~- Puppy Linux or you (in case of an NTFS file system, e.g. NTFS Microsoft WindowsXP) will add only one (or two) big file(s) to your current file system. This will be the only change compared with the current situation of your PC. But of course, you need to have sufficient storage space on your hard disk.
~- You need a CD/DVD CD-writer or DVD-burner with the CD ISO-file which is an image file that contains the Puppy-Linux live-CD operating system. (You can download the ISO file from one of the Puppy Linux download sites. It's only about 60-70 MB.) Then write/burn the downloaded ISO file on a blank CD/DVD as a CD self starting CD/DVD. It is a CD special burning mode for creating bootable CD/DVDs.
~- You know that your computer can read and start (i.e. boot) from system CD/DVDs or checked the BIOS BIOS setup of your PC. See your PC's Instruction Booklet for how to change BIOS settings. (In newer PC's, the boot sequence is usually preset to start from the CD-ROM first). You can test your CD/DVD-ROM's booting capabilities by using the Microsoft Windows Installation CD, it's analogous!
~- Check that the Mouse is plugged-in. (It must be plugged-in!)
~- On my PC, Linux searches now for my Sound_card. Two cards are found. I'm asked to choose which card to use (this can be different on your PC!) and I confirm my choice.
~- Now comes a very important step: I can choose between two Video_servers. Depending on what works with my monitor/display and video card, I choose the screen resolution and size of monitor/display (e.g. 1024 x 768, 19 inch monitor or 17" LCD display). The standard server for Puppy Linux is Video_server Xvesa. It's a basic, no thrills server, but may work best on PC's with older monitors and video cards. The best choice is the second Video_server: Video_server Xorg. It is more powerful and has more capabilites than Xvesa.
