Does 4.4 haye modem card support like the other puppies? also why not simply install the whole 4.4 cd to hd like mepis does?!!!

Ans: The Forum discussion URL is here (please ask questions and give your suggestions here).

Does this one stay installed on the hd in case of power failure?

Ans: Once installed to HD, it stays there. :) If you mean "power failure can corrupt HD install", a frugal install (that uses pup_save.2fs) can be corrupted by sudden power outage, so just reboot with "pfix=ram" in Puppy (or use another OS) and delete or rename pup_save.2fs.

I have tried several versions of puppy and for several days and nights, this is the first one to connect my new generation laptop wireless to the internet. Keep up the good work. Thanks very very much from Italian Puppy fun!

Stardust 4.3.1 was excellent & I have chosen it to replace Windows over other Linux distributions.

Regarding 43.2...

- the edit tray icon in desktop of the control panel did not raise the edit.

- the large splash screen regarding desktop icons being loaded detracts from the otherwise pleasant experience

- the presentation of user files was better in 4.3.1

Too much tweaking of the seemingly near perfect 4.3.1 may not be a good thing!
