I've installed the Simplicity Desktop ISO on my USB drive....

    It's based on the Slacko distro of Puppy Linux with a LXDE desktop interface. It comes with several pre-loaded packages, so it's a very functional environment from the start. Takes about a minute to load. I set a 4gig savefile, so it takes a while to close down while the memory is being written to the USB. I'm pretty impressed, except that...

    On about my 5th boot it failed to launch the desktop and black-screened. It's supposed to revert to a setup screen on my next reboot but it doesn't. It looks like I can get to a command line with a 'nox' argument but I'm not sure what to do once I get there.

    Simplicity is reported to have Wine pre-installed, but I can't figure out how to invoke it. The Package Manager doesn't have it listed as something I can uninstall so I'm guessing that it's incorporated into the OS somehow. Anyway, clicking on a Windows/DOS EXE asks me what I want to use to run it. Where do I go from here?
