I formatted the hd in linux ext 3, installed Puppy. The OS won't fully load up, but tries.
Now every time that I boot, this is the error message that I get: [] = Words here are in red.
"Searching for files in computer disk drives... [] Lupu-501.sfs not found. Dropping out to initial-ramdisk console... []
/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
# _"

What happened and what do I do from here? I'm trying to get back to XP: I was just using Linux as a fixer up tool. But just to let you know, I know next to nothing about Linux, and so I try to avoid using Linux whenever possible. My specialty is with Windows.
