    I hadn't checked, but I think they showed up as separate drives.  When I 
installed Puppy I didn't have a card in the second CF slot on the adapter, 
the CD was my second drive and I'd set the CD's jumper to slave.

    I've been trying to download the current fldigi, but I haven't been able 
to connect to the link http://prdownload.berlios.de/fldigi/fldigi-3.10.pet 
for the last few hours.  There was more amateur radio software available than 
I'd realized, I hope I'll be able to get to it.

   I would like to change the calander on the desktop, it's currently a 
European style with weeks starting on Monday and ending on Sunday, I prefer 
the trditional Sunday through Saturday, but I haven't found a config menu for 
date, time, and the calander.

    How are the Puppy user groups and forums, should I consider joining?

    So far, apart from the download problem, Puppy is working well for me.
