Software Installation

Ensure that the latest available versions of the following pre-requisite packages are installed:
bzip2, curl, dosfstools, e2fsprogs, grep, ntfs3g, tar, wget, xz

Sometimes installing PET and TXZ packages to frugal Puppy installations requires the amount of free space inside the personal save file to be at least 3 times the size of the package.

"To which location has the software package been downloaded to?"
One needs to know to which location a software package has been downloaded to. If a Web browser is used for downloading, then it would need to be manually configured to the user's preference.
