As 67GTA pointed out, Puppy was designed to run from a cd. Puppy runs in root all the time. I can't over emphasize how unwise this is for a traditional HD install.
Don't get me wrong, I like Puppy and use it as a back-up system and tool kit. It can be a life saver when all else fails. It really comes in handy for some maintenance and repair tasks. I always keep a copy handy.
I don't recommend you do a traditional install of Puppy to a hard drive though.
Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and each time expecting a different result.
Democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on the menu. Liberty is an armed lamb protesting the electoral outcome. A Republic negates the need for an armed protest.
