But the question remains, why does AntiX prevent Puppy linux from mounting its partition
Either it is because, as I mentioned before, sda3 needs a fs check and the one on Puppy is too old or Puppy has failed to add antiX partition to /etc/fstab

Yes, could be that, I'll check. Mint will open the partition so the problem appears to be with Puppy.

Right, it's not a matter of antiX allowing or disallowing. Whatever you started with (i had formed the impression it was some puppy distro), it installed an older version of grub4dos and/or e2fsprogs which cannot handle the metadata present on partitions which have been created via use of the newer e2fsprogs version. antiX uses the newer version, and your older version doesn't recognize, doesn't know how to handle it. The error message literally tells you that "a newer version of e2fsprogs" is required.

Yes, during the AntiX install I let it reformat the Ext4 partition (originally created with Puppy 5.7.1).
