    I tried Puppy linux v4.31 I believe, a while ago.Really like it but don't know how to costumize it to be look like windows (the gui).I tried GOOGLE but when read throu 2-4 pages, I didn't found what I'm looking for.Any one who can guide me or at least give a link/s to a good site for a beginner/NOOBS???

    I am not so well versed in DSL (although it is very similar) but puppy is my liveCD of choice unless I need something extra/special (passwords, hardware tests, server/cluster and the like).

    Anyhow this is not so much a puppy linux question but a general linux question- to get to your GUI takes a few steps including the x window manager and what you see (as well as stuff on top of that or instead of "basic" features on occasion- stuff like compiz).
    This is getting off topic though- the stock puppy linux distro uses JWM as do many built on it. "themes" is the word of choice here
    http://dotpups.de/dotpups/WindowManagers/JWM-themes/ has a basic example for you to poke through but I sense http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=23260 is probably what you want to look at.

    Similar arrangements exist for icewm and the other various secondary window managers.
