Question about Puppy Linux 2.13


Hey,

I downloaded Puppy Linux and everything is good and well. I installed it on to my flash drive, didn't work the first time, but I eventually got it. Now, when it loads from the USB drive, it looks like it loads directly into RAM like the Live CD. My question is, is Puppy Linux supposed to do this or did I do something wrong? Puppy loads the kernel and two other files which I can't recall right now, but when I view the drive in Gparted it shows the drive as unallocated. Then, on the desktop, Puppy has a drive viewer when opened and viewing my USB drive it shows all the files and the file system... weird? I don't know, but that doesn't sound right. Last question, I had to use the superfloppy option in order for my drive to be able to boot. I'm assuming this means I can't partition the drive and get a small vfat partition on there huh?

Many thanks,

Brandon
