Puppy 5.12 startup config error
My puppy boot up says there something wrong with a config file, and doesn't remember my LAN settings. which file, can I delete it and re-establish my machine config file, and how do I stop a repeat? I'm dual boting with XP, on a LAN card which has to be configured on each login by the system, and I'm not sure that the LAN card likes the hot swapping between OS's.2.6GHz Celeron, 1GB, 160GB, 128Mb SuSe11.2; PCTV, GBit eth0 on P4PE, 10/100 eth1 <Ride to ride again>.

Need more info. Is this a frugal or full install on it's own partition and are you using grub to boot?
Is this installed inside of Windows?
One thing you can try is the F2 option at grub boot screen. Try
title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.34-stevo root (hd0,5) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.34-stevo root=UUID=33d2cb14-08cc-4db8-80c6-771828e68200 ro initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.34-stevo title antiX at hda6, kernel 2.6.32-1-mepis-smp root (hd0,5) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-1-mepis-smp root=/dev/hda6 nomce quiet nosplash vga=normal acpi=force initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-1-mepis-smp boot title MacPup Foxy3 430 full sda7 root (hd0,6) kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda7 pmedia=atahd nosmp acpi=force
Boot option for frugal to boot without loading personal pupsave (you don't want it to mount if going to delete it) is the pfix=ram boot option. You can then make a new saved personal pupsave after booting up.
pfix=ram will run Puppy totally in RAM and ignore saved sessions/storage file(s)
pfix=<n> where <n> is the number of saved sessions to ignore for a multisession-CD
pfix=rdsh will exit to initial ramdisk commandline (do not pivot_root∞)
pfix=usbcard for booting from USB flash drive via USB 2.0 to PCMCIA adapter
pfix=clean will force a simulated version upgrade (for Puppy 2.13 and later)
pfix=purge will force an even more radical file cleanup (to fix broken system) (for Puppy 2.14 and later)
pfix=#debug may help with debugging
