New to Puppy Linux?

This review gives a very good introduction, with many screenshots. After reading it, you will likely find this tutorial on installing Puppy Linux helpful.

This is not an advertisement but a referral to help us get more storage space for 412 Collection packages.

Puppy Linux 412 is an operating system that supports many vintage computers, including Pentium II-era machines.

Special thanks to tuxtoo, who has turned the 412 Collection over to us. We wish him the best, and appreciate his assistance during this transition.
