kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 acpi=off PFILE=/dev/hda5/pup_201.sfs-none-524288 PHOME=hda5
initrd /initrd.gz

Try this coding with tweaks of course. I do not know your setup or I could comment further.

here is my extlinux.cfg of a cf8GB card on IDE adapter (or USB adapter); it should be adapted to the grub syntax.
puppy warry is in it (one of the newest version). Lucid Puppy (the newest one) I installed on a lenovo netbook HDD of a colleague had the same sysntax. So, it should work.
