need help!
A "thin client" does no real work on its own; it displays the work done on a server. The Transmeta Crusoe CPU (released in 2000) emulates a x86 processor. I can't find exactly what version of x86 it emulates, but since it's supposed to support MMX, it should in principle emulate a x586, and thus be able to run Linux. The fact that you were able to run an old version of Puppy (however slowly) proves it.

Finding a distribution that's able to do anything useful is another matter. I suggest you try Tiny Core Linux, which requires 46 MB of RAM. If it doesn't run satisfactorily, try a distribution about as old as the Crusoe CPU itself.

How were you able to install Puppy? From a USB drive?
