Special July 2022 series:

A lot has happened since my first 3/31/2022 post on Porteus Linux. I’ve gained lots of knowledge, and Porteus v5.0 just came out on 7/4/2022. Lots of great pics in those older posts, but also some not-so-easy methods were used ‘n written by me on ‘How To‘ do ‘Thangs. Check them out as needed, but this series is going to offer a more reliable method for installing ‘n using Porteus v5.0…IMHO. 😉
