George Bell wrote a special version of Triangular Peg Solitaire for the website back in 2005.

He has now published a paper here: Solving Triangular Peg Solitaire.

If you click the link MathsIsFun has given for the paper, you get to the page and up in the top right corner it says

"Download:

* PostScript

* PDF

* Other formats"

Choose one of those. Your computer probably has Adobe so I'd choose PDF.
