aaa.. ok, now I understood what you want to say, and I understood why you used the spoiler, you actually were trying to solve the puzzle, but I though you were talking about restrictions when you set the initial position. However, that does not affect the result, if you do it by hand it just doesn't matter, and if you do it with a program, the program is not interested in these "restrictions", it just tries brute force, all possible combinations of two moves, from which one must be a pawn move (as well it can be the first, no matter if you start with a horse, you will still need to move a pawn to allow fool mate) and exits if a fool mate is found. The search space is very small.
