your not understanding...
Your using Knoppix right?
The console commands above are to mount the iso and then copy the Contents of the iso to a folder, any folder you want.
so, you don't drag n drop any folder into usb, just the Contents of that folder.
when you issue the command
mount -o loop mount -o loop RescuePup-Beta-1.iso mount
that will mount the puppy iso on the folder, named mount
after giving that command, go look in the mount folder you made
yyou should see the Contents of the iso.
Then, issues the copy command to copy the contents of mount to the folder newcd
that above means copy (cp) all (-a) contents of mount to newcd.
Once you do that you should see the contents of iso in newcd folder
Now, you need to move the Contents of folder newcd to usb
if you use the copy command above, you will probably overwrite any folder named "boot" on your usb, thats why I said drag n dropp to usb
first, if you have a boot folder on usb, in there is a syslinux folder?
if so, just add the entries from puppy syslinux.cfg to knoppix syslinux.cfg
basically, your just gonna add folders/files from the iso to your usb, just don't overwrite anything there
tip, if yu open 2 instances of Rox filemanager, the drag n drop works better, just drag wgatever from one window to the other rox window
and when you let go the left mouse button, it
will ask whether you want to copy or move it there.
