Additional testing notes before I forget..... Smiley  Successfully used ps/2 mouse and keyboard in test 1 and used USB mouse and keyboard for test 2...... no problems with either box.

Installed Opera to the frugal install on the Athlon XP box..... posting from it now.

Manual frugal install completed...... no problems.Installed Rox with MyDSL .....no problems there either. (My primary OS is Puppy so I've got to have Rox-Filer....).No real difficulties yet.

First quick live test...... hardware a bit newer than the target but........ Booted to a 1024x768 desktop with working sound and internet out of the box. All apps I've tried so far appear to be working.

Going to replace my frugal install of 4.4.10 with this for further tests and I'll drag out some older hardware tomorrow too. Looks pretty solid.
