so in it there is no option of macpup
That is why I said http://macpup.org/
I download the iso first to Windows, Then Md5SUM check the iso. Then point the usb installer to the iso located in Windows file manager.
I emailed runtt21 the developer of MacPup . I mailed him a .tar document to insert in his forum for pendrive installs and how I do them. I could not get my how to to post in his thread at the forum for some reason today is why I emailed that to him. He emailed me and asked me to do this after seeing this thread.
Here it is if you want to use it:
As per request. This is how I make MacPup frugal Flash drives.
I first grab me a 2 to 4 gig flash drive formatted as fat32 file system. Pendrive or SD flash will do for this.
I download my Macpup iso from
I download the md5sum also and run a md5sum check on downloaded MacPup iso to check file integrity. In Windows This will do the job for md5sum check
After I find that everything is correct and md5sum matches ok. I proceed to plug in my USB drive next.
No need to reformat fat32 partition on flash drive. It is the prefered file system I use when making bootable frugal Puppy flash drives in this manner.
In all my testing done for runtt21. My preferred method of usb install is
I have used the Linux version and the Windows version also. It has never failed me on either operating system to make me a bootable Macpup pendrive. The site has how tos to walk you through the install process. Just make sure you point the installer to your usb drive.
I shut down the computer when install to usb is done instead of picking reboot. Just a personal habit. Sometimes I move the pendrive to another computer is why I do this. I boot the pendrive next on the computer making sure I go into bios first and select usb boot on bioses that support it. For 1.1 usb computers that do not have usb boot support in bios. I made me a bootable PLOP floppy disk boot manager.
Since most people reading this don't have a floppy drive. Above link shows how to make a PLOP bootable CD disk instead.
For anyone with a Floppy drive. I used the below page instructions to make my bootable floppy image.
Ok/ I am assuming all went well with you and your flash install and you got it to boot up to a desktop.
Next I connect to internet with Barrys simple network wizard. I always research external wifi devices like pcmcia cards and usb wifi pendrives to make sure I have a compatible wifi chip for my Kernel on any Linux distro I use. There is plenty of documentation on this at
I use wpa2 psk wireless encryption on my home network and Barrys simple network manager and or Dougals Network manager work ok for me connecting up wireless and saving config on next boot (after making a personal save first though in Macpup). You need the personal save file first before any settings and changes are remembered on a frugal install. When I shut down. I make my 1st personal save file 512MB because I do a lot of tweaking on my frugal installs. I make it ext2 file system and I saver it the the usb I run MacPUP off of. After the save file has been made. I reboot. I go through connecting my wireless or wired connection again. Tell dhcp to save config on next boot if using Dougals network Manager. In fact. Anything that pos up and asks me to save on next reboot. I say yes to keep this simple.
I also install grub4dos on my pendrive to have more options for booting on my pendrive instead of using unetbootins bootloader. grub4dos install can be found in MacPups menu.
I leave this post with a couple of extra treats
Above statements are from my compressed text .tar file I made for runtt21 and anyone else needing to use it.
