At present I am using Linux Mint 12 (Lisa).
I personally already installed Puppy 2 times on usb
a) start the puppy CD and click the install menu inside the live puppy CD
b) install another distro (TinyCoreLinux from the CD Multicore with ext2 format); then extend the extlinux.conf file and install manually all puppy versions (warry/slacko/puppy) as multiboot menu (by extracting all files from the puppy...iso with isomaster and putting them manually on the USB)
So, if you need few help for b), ask again. But a) should be enough.
But: why do you want puppy? is there any reason? only because you want an usb for a netbook and you think puppy is the best distro for it? if I remember, the best feeling (in term of quick sucess; not performance) I had with live distro on usb was with partedmagic, archbang, knoppix, puppy. In term of performance, I use TinyCoreLinux.
