It seems to be computer dependent which install is best.  A full hard drive install is best if you plan to add lots of programs.  The frugal or save file both work also.  Make sure you have a swap partitions 4 times the size of you memory.  Other then that follow the manual for the version of puppy you are using.  There are some minor changes between the 3.x series and the 4.x series.

Hi,  Perhaps some will recall the Everex GreenPC that
I brought to the Aug. meeting to demo Ubuntu 8.04.1.
I am now looking at changing it to Puppy as it gives good
results on this low-performance PC.  I'm sure that much
of the performance boost is due to running a live CD
session in ram so now what steps will help keep this
performance when changing over to a regular HD install?
Clearly, I can just follow the procedure from the Puppy site,
but wonder if there may be some tips on doing this?
Nate, I know that you have a lot of experience
with Puppy.

Thanks,  Howard
