For sound setup in the puppy CD: do alsamixer in a terminal
just follow the instructions... if nothing works, a simple USB headphone device 

Puppy has a phantastic wifi setup program:
Setup->Internet connection wizard

Hello Rein thanks for the short instructions.
I tried the live cd's first. (latest versions)
I found the fligi and pskmail files in the binaries. (thanks Per)
Problem with the live CD is the configurations of sound devices,also wifi won´t 
I don´t know what the server is doing. I tried to upload a mail via the server, 
but did not get it through. 
It would be nice to have flow diagram of the handling by server.
I just dont understand yet the steno of linux terminal.
If I have more specific questions. I will be back. It would be nice to have a 
working PSKmail server in Latin America. 
I feel quite lonely in this respect.

 Hi Karel,

 first of all, which live CD? there are several. Pse specifics....

 To install a server on UBUNTU, do the following:
 * Connect to the internet
 * Install fldigi
 * Download pskmail_server-1.0.32.tar.gz from 
 * In a terminal do tar zxvf pskmail_server.tar.gz
 * cd pskmail_server-1.0.32
 * sudo ./INSTALL
 * answer yes to all questions
 * start fldigi
 * start pskmail_server in a terminal

 The server files are in /usr/local/share/pskmail_server

 To install a client on linux or windows,

 * connect to internet
 * install
 * download the installer of jPSKmail-0.8.5 for linux or windows
 * in linux, make installer executable
 * run installer
 * start fldigi
 * start jPSKmail

them. Were should I put the installables to be installes in what dir or

 Hello I am trying to setup pskmail server in Ubuntu, but I dont know where to 
put the installable and how to execute the installation.
 I dont know anything of Linux.  Manuals step by step I need.
 When I try to start installation with a terminal session. I says It cant find 
the files.
 The files are now in the download dir.
 Please some help.

 Another questions. I have a live CD that installes the server but when a try 
to run a live cd client it installes the server not the client.
 What to do?

 On a CD here on my desk...
  It all started when we figured it would be nice to have the modem part
  included in the pskmail client. Franz-Josef did a very nice job of
  porting the necessary classes to java, he also built a simple user
  interface for testing. I have attached an image of that, nothing much to
  see there but it just shows that it does run on java and it works.

  At a later stage we decided not to include it anyway as we would then
  not benefit from all the hard work done by the fldigi group. But, it
  would make a very nice addition to an android phone. With this mornings
  announcement from Nokia I will immediately ditch my phone and get an
  android device so I would like to see this there as well.
