Hi All,

Is there a way to run puppy linux only on a workstation?  Not a duel boot or live from a CD or USB.

Yup. Install it on your hdd.

Here's an old guide that should still be relevant: http://www.puppylinux.com/hard-puppy.htm

Yes there is an install icon on the boot CD and I believe that is what you have now.

I run puppy linux as a workstation.  It's fast as heck until you run out of memory.
