I hope this is the right forum to post this on. My experience on computers is so so. My computer had Windows ME installed on it. I wanted to start from scratch with a different Operating system so I wiped my hard drive. I would like to install Puppy (or any linux) on a wiped hard drive. Is this possible? If so, I would need step by step instructions. Is there anyone that would like to take on this task? Thank You.

gus just a suggestion you install what you want. i have messed with puppy and not very impressed i would suggest that you give linux mint a whirl it comes with most of the standard applications already install.
