Another WebDT owner pointed this thread out to me. Lots of possibilities there.

Can someone else please try Puppy linux? When I try I cant get my usb mouse to work. Its the only usb mouse I have.

At first I didnt think puppy was going to work. Especially when I saw the script that called the x windows server passing by in repetition. Got a phone call and while on the phone I saw the desktop pop up. Tat script must have repeated twenty times.

For the life of me I could not get the mouse to work. Now if you have had your DT for few days you have probably noticed usb can be a little funny at times. Especially when something doesnt boot and you have to pull all plugs and hold the power button for five seconds. Or when you have more than a few things plugged in on the usb hub and you end up looking at a "waiting for usb device" message that never goes away. Or the old "no bootable target".

I have tried various attempts and trickery with my mouse but to good luck. Puppy looks nice. Can someone else give Puppy a shot and post your results please?

Thanks
