Can not you just use the package manager to install whatever you want?
The package i want to install (nano) isn't listed in the package manager; i haven't got internet access on that computer yet (although that could be arranged).
Could I use PETget Package Manager to install programs from USB flash-drive?
Puppy has a very simple system for converting into a complete compiler
environment, in which you can run the usual "configure", "make" and
"make install" on a downloaded source package. At least, it's very
simple in the case of running Puppy from live-CD: see web page
Puppy on a CD.
