Good job!! Also...
I really like having a copy of puppy 1.06 laying around. My machine has only the one CDwriter, and with puppy, it can load itself into ram, if you follow directions, and does include a working cd burner all in that 70MB. So, IF, and it is a mighty big IF, you can boot and access a disk, you can happily write whatever you can get hold of, onto a CD as well.
Puppy 2.0x has some problems with cdrecord, though there may be other burn utilities that don't use it, but I know the iso burner uses it, and on my TEAC will not burn iso's. Puppy 2.0x also has a built in DVD burner, but I have none, so can give no opinion.
No matter, for you the problem was solved.
