did you use the universal installer to install puppy, and what errors do you get when trying to boot puppy in fugal mode? Need to have a puppy431 folder in top directory with the following files in it: vmlinuz, pup-431.sfs, initrd.gz. in your grub need the following entry;
title Puppy Linux 431 frugal
rootnoverify (hd0,0) this assumes puppy431 is on first drive,first partition
kernel /puppy431/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd psubdir=puppy431
initrd /puppy431/initrd.gz
