I have had a degree of success. I've been able to bring up my Ubuntu
computer from the Puppy box, which is the most important for me. When I
pick "Tight Vnc" from the menu, I get a little window that seems to want
me to enter a server address. I couldn't work that. But, when I open a
terminal window and type:
tightvnc (either IP address or computer name):0
It asked for a password, and that made my computer appear, and I could
work on it. F8 enabled me to quit. There is a resolution
incompatibility, with the Puppy's small screen, but I could push with my
courser to move across the screen.
So the magic does work, once you find the correct incantation.
Thanks to all.
