Additions:
== How does Slacko compare with other Puppy versions? ==
//I sent a pm to Mick congratulating on the release of Slacko 5.3, but would also like to do it publicly.
Personally, I was impressed by Mick's even temperament, patience and persistent enthusiasm.//
[[http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02572 BarryK]]

Our three main Puppys are [[http://www.puppylinux.com/download/ Slacko, Lucid and Wary]]. Slacko is designed for newer computers, six or seven years old.
[[Wary]] is a conservative design for older hardware, Lucid [[puppy526 Puppy 528]], for Ubuntu fans is a mature well supported Puppy.
[[http://bkhome.org/quirky/ Quirky]] and [[Racy]] are used by Barry Kauler, the original creator of Puppy, to test new ideas.
[[Saluki]] is beginning to emerge as our potential next release
[[Dpup]] (Puppy + Debian) is designated as Puppy 6, currently being developed by ""Dejan555"", Iguleder, Pemasu and Sickgut.
Future Puppy will offer x86, [[PARM ARM]] and 64 bit versions and have support for tablet, phone, touch, cloud and Android features

Edited on 2011-10-30 21:48:16 by CrustyLobster [start with a fresh install]

Additions:
backup html bookmarks
move any essential files to storage media
[[InstallationIndex Download and burn the ISO]] (make sure you know how to do this)
**Now first run:**
- If you have previous other versions of Puppy it is a good idea to type 'puppy pfix=ram' at the initial boot:
I do this because I will have a previous save file and do not want to boot with that config
- Use Probe and other settings, wizards
- Turn on firewall from icon bar bottom right (right click for options)
- You could do a reboot now to save your settings or you might install to hard disk
- In Rox options/thumbnails/show images
- Add your backgrounds from Hard drive (usr/share/backgrounds)
Deletions:
Download and burn the ISO (make sure you know how to do this)
Should you download Flash when prompted? A lot of sites still use flash so still a good idea
