Took me forever to find the drive under the /mnt directory.

Are you sure you installed it? If it is your only "hard drive", I would expect it to be mounted a just plain / . It would be mounted under /mnt only if you were running from the CD-ROM.

Ahhhh, so I thought also, until I tried downloading a large file a couple times and "ran out of space"after only 450 or so megs had downloaded, which totally screwed up my system.

I THINK it has to do with the fact that Puppy loads everything into RAM and the default file viewer shows the file folders that are loaded into RAM, so I was running out of RAM when downloading. It takes me a while poking around to actually find the drive or other media. And I have been able to download a couple large files now that I know what I am looking for. In Windows I am used to downloading to the desktop. Now the "desktop" folder is in RAM, so I can't just use desktop as the default.

I'll get the hang of this yet.
