CD - R with Puppy 4 can oneput SliTaz on it instead? Solved


I have an alpha on it now and don't need that one but have some 600 meg free

So a 25 mb iso with SliTaz would be fine.

Which program do I need to use to "delete" the iso on the CD - R
and instead put the iso of slitaz on it and that one still can boot?

Or is the CD forever locked to the puppy on it even if one "mark" as
deleted? I used BurnCDcc to burn the CD.

Help much appreciated. Would love to test the shut down power down
ability of slitaz cause puppy maybe don't do that properla at times

The fan never shut down and start to fspin faster and faster as if
it overheats and try to stop that by doing more fan action.

I had to use power button for four seconds to make it go dead.

SliTax is reported to do clean power off.

Oups, may I ask.

Did I mislead you???

I wrote that it was a CD-R not a CD-RW which you
seems to imply with that command and that one is
a puppy program. Does it exist in windows too?

I read about it on puppy forum now Zibert has made it.

But I fail to find a manual on how to use it.

But if I use a commando that says blank that would
make all of it deleted the whole 780 meg or so.

What I need is a edit of the boot record or something.

Don't use this part go to next part of the disk and start there
and the bios will use the newest iso that is burned?


wouldn't that work?

I want to mark the current iso as not there for the software
in the computer.

I guess me is too stingy. they cost about two dollars in our local shop.
Not much money. I can afford to loose one but I have only seven unused
and there are more than seven distros to test. But I will try to use my
DVD-rw instead cause they are possible to blank and start all over.

vvnslm, I have three DVD-RW that I can use that way then.

But another way maybe is to use Sun's virtual box and
use that one to check out how they are.

I have to look at these you mention then.

what is it about them that made you prefer them to
regular Puppy 4.0 Dingo which I have on my DVD-R now?

I'm trying to do a frugal install of that one cause I
fail to defrag my HD to allow for shrinking of size to
make place for a linux partition so I want a non-evasive
install. And WUBI Ubuntu was such and Lin'n Win is another
and Ulteo Linux a third and using Puppy with CD/DVD a more
tricky one cause the bios has to be able to boot from cd.

There are older computers that doesn't.

But I fail to set up a tripple boot with WUBI so I am
deleting, uninstalling WUBI now cause I never got Ubuntu
sound with RAM files to work. My bad I guess.

Puppy got it to work out of the box. so I am interested
in teenpup cause didn't they write that one was good at
video and sound?

So what are the two distros you like best good at?

nooby ,as a windoze refuge i find NOP similar to windows explorer,
Tigerpup has wbar just like mac, if you want to try distros in Puppy Linux try "Vpuppy" which i have installed on my latest system
Try Vuppy for emulating all disro iso's

I guess me should search for this NOP version then.

I thought of just add things to the p4 I have frugal install of.
I mean on a 160GB hd no need to stay withing 100meg distro?

I use the Lin'nWin install now and that works good for me.
Can I add NOP to that one easily in frugal install?

Yes, just add another entry to your menu.lst file.
