Thank you torres. This looks good but I think I'd be better off with something lighter.

I tried Puppy on my Asus notebook, which has 3 gig RAM but a 1ghz CPU and struggles horribly to run Windows.

Puppy runs very smoothly and loads quickly from flash drive, I'm impressed. But I can't get any sound and really, don't much like the environment. Hard to describe exactly, of course part of that is just unfamiliarity. But it's things like navigating to different drives, especially from within programs. And the media players that come with Puppy tell me error when I try to play an MP3. Which I guess might be connected to the soundcard issue.

I googled re the soundcard issue and found a solution which activated the volume control in the systray but I still have no sound. It's a standard on-board Realtek HD soundcard.

Anyway I wasn't posting about that really, I just wondered what alternatives to Puppy I might try. Distros that run from RAM and ideally some way to put it on my HDD so I don't need the flash drive every time I boot my notebook.
