Welcome. This Distro is for older computers . Using a build as you go approach. Iso's are barebones no browser etc ready to add what you want.
Forked from Puppy Linux 412/4.31 and updated.
Before Installation its recommended to read wiki first. Then download your suitable iso from here ( LTS ISO'S FINAL )

. To go to commandline press CTRL ALT together and Backspace.

If you need help with wireless and other topics consult the wiki area. New Info on seamonkey in Wiki Area. If extra wireless Drivers are required, It is best to use the NON-SMP ISO - for extra non-SMP kernel wireless drivers. NEW WGET UPDATE (This Page):
