Additions:
- [[Racy]] supports more modern computers with a later Linux kernel.
**Toshiba Troubleshooting**
The real issue may be "which Puppy is happiest with the particular video hardware in this machine". For example Toshiba have used lots of different video boards in their various machines and it is often trial and error selecting the best mode to run the graphics board in. If you use it in a basic mode without acceleration you may find that Vesa is the best starting choice (Note that Xvesa is a different thing from Vesa).
(Different versions of puppy use slightly different formats of the video selection procedure at setup time, so explore the "probe / choose / test" options fully - sometimes the best option is accessed in a different order than you might first expect)
If you want it to run in accelerated mode (which is very useful if you can get it to work...) then you will need a special driver and need to get it correctly configured which can be a mission. Maybe leave that till later.
Different puppies will have different default video setups depending on what hardware the original creator of that version was using. For that reason it is worth trying a variety of versions to see if any get you a little closer.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=67811
Another good one to try is Puppy 4.3.1
Although it is an older, more basic version of Puppy, it is renowned for being pretty rock solid and the key at this stage is to identify what will work with your video hardware, rather than finding the best overall Puppy at the moment.

===Which Puppy is right for you?===
Puppy Linux has spawned many different versions. Puppy was developed by [[BarryK Barry Kauler]] who releases or gives permission to release official versions. Puppy makes it easy to create your own personalised versions or Puplets. This has led to an explosion in unofficial releases and derivative versions.
There are many [[PuppyVersion different puplets]] out there now built on different versions of puppy Linux as well as the established builds. Computer specifications; how much ram and CPU speed are a big factor in choosing a puplet.
Once you have decided the best Puppy OS to use, consider what you use your computer for and what your needs are. Then determine what to install on top of default apps. eg basic emailing, looking up websites like facebook, youtube, chatting online, and other general Internet use, creating documents, editing photos etc.
There are different ways to install puppy
The size of your hard drive is not usually a problem for puppy Linux, neither is the flash drive size but the save file size (frugal install) you intend to use may be. Mostly with the save file you will not need more than 1-2GB but remember if you are installing puppy Linux on a flash drive that has a fat32 file system due to the limitations of fat 32 you can't save more than a 4GB save file. (Note that fat 32 is still good to use especially if you want to use the same flash drive to store you files on the go for access on any other computer.) It helps to have as little in the save file as you can. So what a lot of puppy users end up doing is saving things such as downloads, documents, music, photos etc, outside the save file, to hard drive or a flash drive.

First you need to look at your computer specifications. How much ram and your CPU speed. These things are a big factor in determining what puplet you should choose. If you have a very old computer say with 128 MB ram and 1.00GHz CPU. A good choice is turbo pup as it small and fast. So try the last version or an earlier one. [[http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=13107 Turbo pup]]. If you have an old computer with around 521 mb ram and 1.8 CPU then a version based on puppy 431 or earlier would be a good choice. This is because the older linux kernels may be better optimised for older computers. There are many different versions built on puppy 431 and this is still a great stable base that has been worked on for a long time. Remember for old computers an older kernel is best and probably better optimised.
Once you have determined the best base puppy OS you need you now need to consider what you mainly use your computer for and what are you needs. If you jut use you computer for basic emailing, looking up websites like facebook, youtube, chatting online, and other general Internet use and creating documents, editing photos then there are many good puppy versions for this. One I have used myself is Bruno pup [[http://brainwavedesigncentral.net/mike/Bruno-pup.html Click here]] Bruno pup is based on puppy 431 it has a lot of applications. And is good for general everyday use. Puppy linux is a versatile os but it does lack some features. I find that the built in puppy linux scanner no matter what resolution is chosen is always pixilated to some degree. so for faxing I have to use another os atm. also now there is a new version of puppy called Think Linux (TL/os) it is based on the quirky 1.2 and very user friendly. it is designed to be out of the box.

Once you have determined the best base puppy OS you need you now need to consider what you mainly use your computer for and what are you needs. If you jut use you computer for basic emailing, looking up websites like facebook, youtube, chatting online, and other general Internet use and creating documents, editing photos then there are many good puppy versions for this. One I have used myself is Bruno pup [[http://brainwavedesigncentral.net/mike/Bruno-pup.html Click here]] Bruno pup is based on puppy 431 it has a lot of applications. And is good for general everyday use. Puppylinux is a versatile os but it does lack some features. i find that the built in puppy linux scanner no matter what resolution is chosen is always pixilated to some degree. so for faxing i hav to ue another os atm.

Before reading further you may also want to read about the different ways to install puppy linux. [[http://pupweb.org/wikka/FrugalvsFullinstall Ways to install puppy.]] (note that also there is now a pup_save.3fs file which contains an uncompressed ext3 filesystem).
First you need to look at your computer specifications. How much ram and your CPU speed. These things are a big factor in determining what puplet you should choose. If you have a very old computer say with 128 MB ram and 1.00GHz CPU. A good choice is turbo pup as it small and fast. So try the last version or an earlier one. [[http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=13107 Turbo pup]]. If you have an old computer with around 521 mb ram and 1.8 CPU then a version based on puppy 431 or earlier would be a good choice. This is because the older linux kernels may be better optimized for older computers. There are many different versions built on puppy 431 and this is still a great stable base that has been worked on for a long time. Remember for old computers an older kernel is best and probably better optimized.

You may even find a puppy version designed for your specific computer make and model with the common drivers that are needed for it. Such as the puppeee for eee computers [[http://puppylinux.org/news/releases/puppeee-10-for-the-eee-is-released/ Click here]]

The size of your hard drive is not usually a problem for puppy Linux, neither is the flash drive size but the save file size you intend to use maybe. Mostly with the save file you will not need more than 1-2GB but remember if you are installing puppy Linux on a flashdrive that has a fat32 file system due to the limitations of fat 32 you can't save more than a 4GB save file. (Note that fat 32 is still good to use especially if you want to use the same flash drive to store you files on the go for access on any other computer.) It helps to have as little in the save file as you can. So what a lot of puppy users end up doing is saving things such as downloads, documents, music, photos etc, outside the save file, to hdd or a flash drive.
