Ok I'm using my old Puppy Linux cd and I can't get past the boot.

It says
Loading the 'LUPU-511.sfs' main file...Copying to RAM.

And it goes no further.

I'm using a Dell Dimension 8200 which was refurbished with some new parts. Mainly another 40g hdd and a DvD Drive (that refuses to function under any OS).

My concern might be that my Hard Drives are incorrectly jumped or my computer is just really problematic. Then again why would it not copy to ram if the HDD is the problem?

Personally I just think it's my hardware because I used this disk just a few days ago without any problems but suggestions appreciated thanks in advance.
