I am running puppy linux in Virtual PC 2007 on Windows XP . My virtual RAM is 100Mb. I cannot get my Logitech PS2 optical mouse to work inside puppy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

^^^ I think you should edit your xorg.cong
As root:
nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

And set correct mouse settings? For instance mine (in Arch) is:
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Xorg Configured"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
	InputDevice    "PS/2 Mouse" "CorePointer"
EndSection


TBH I am not much experienced with Puppy so cannnot help further.

O.K. Go for Moon OS which is based on Ubuntu but uses LXDE and enlightment DE but has the bell and whistles of regular Heavyweight like KDE..Lxde and Enlightment aare very light on your system

From the screenshots, Moon OS is looking like a pretty nice distro. I also happened to read about it today on the DistroWatch Weekly.

Puppy is a good choice for old hardware but many applications are still in old version..But in case you want to amaze your friend with your old hardware with Puppy there is a way out!! this thing called 'Puplet' which means' little darlings of puppy'. Actually they are not little compare to puppy but simply a remastered Puppy with added / customised puppy for special purpose, some puplets has more than 700 mb ISO
here some examples: PupFluxLite

At 84 mb, this fluxbox version of Puppy is very quick. It has gnumeric and abiword and a couple of other things removed, including JWM. download here

2. Growler

This one kept the kid's in mind for their Gaming but 635MB download here

there are still some good puplets are there for more information visit here
U see I am wasting more precious bandwith here

Happy Linux!!
