Kenji, the Puppy menu includes a utility to make a Wakepup floppy. This is a floppy that will scan all attached drives, including USB, to find a copy of Puppy and then boot from it. ISTR it's near the Universal Installer in the menu, or maybe under Control Panel? (I'm not running Puppy right now, sorry.)
