Depending on your experience, this might take a few hours to understand and set-up but you can have a lot of simple fun if you set-up your hard-drive and live distro hard-drive installs. This will allow you to set-up a nice stable system for everyday use but also allow you to test the new releases quickly and easily whether it is slax, puppy, grafpup, pizzapup, etc.
1. Format hard drive with the following:
- small partition for grub
- a bunch of 1Gb partitions for your live distros
- remaining partition is your permanent storage of music, videos, data, etc.
2. Install grub to small partition as per this ...
3. Copy contents of your puppy cd to one of your partitions.
4. Then configure grub to point to the relevant files that you just copied over.
All done. You actually dont need to even burn the iso. You can just mount like this ... mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/iso. You may need to a mkdir /mnt/iso.
This is what your grub command should look something like ...
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 nopcmcia
then so on for your next partitions etc etc.
Oh and by the way, even though it is still installed to hard-drive, it still runs in ram so it is fast and it is very quick copying to ram each boot-up.
