2. What would happen if theoretically I do get the huge Fatty Precise Puppy. How would I use that since I have the Precise Puppy already loaded? Would they conflict? Would I be better starting over with the Fatty Precise Puppy? I'm not sure how that would go. If I 'start over' what do I do with the existing Puppy info on my hard drive?
Create another partition on HDD and Dual Boot. And there will be no problems.
I was curious to see how Puppy would run on my much faster desktop with 8GB of ram. It's very fast and much more fun to use than Win 8
Install it to USB and try it that way.
desktop with 8GB of ram.
I can never see a situation where you will need that much ram.

(which I shouldn't have wasted my money on, especially after using Linux for just a little while now)
Glad you are learning. Now if only we could convince others that linux is not this big bad geek only os.
Also remember Puppy is 1 of the harder Distros to master so you are doing great.
On that desktop May I suggest you try Kubuntu its what I run, As Austin Powers once said ... Yeah Baby.
Welcome to Linux, You are officially a GEEK IN TRAINING.
I created a persistence space to save changes, but ran it 2 times & nothing was saved. I either installed it wrong or didn't setup something right.
After you Install puppy, Shut the Pc down and puppy will ask you to create a save file, select yes then go thru the process of creating a save file.
I know what you mean, that "fatty" version is larger than any Windows home OS. 3.7-3.8GB is a huge download,
Yes it is. But. Remember this it has everything pre installed so you most likley will not have to add anything to it ever
