Hard Puppy


Hello Everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows how I can install linux puppy on my hard rive so that I dont need the live cd. I have allready installed it and I installed GRUB, but unfortunatly when I boot up my pc all that is displayed is GRUB...., puppy wont boot up. I have checked several tutorials online but none of them seem to get it done. Thanks in advanced for any help.

If it won't boot, then you will need to modify your Grub menu.lst (or grub.cfg) file. To do so, when grub loads after you turn on the computer, follow these steps:

- Highlight the OS you want to load
- Press the letter "e" to edit the bootloader configuration
- Now check that the correct kernel path/filename is set in the line; if you were to remove the whole path, type /boot/ and press tab, you might get luck enough to have tab completion help you get the kernel path correct.

Here's an example of my GRUB configuration:

Code:
# (0) Arch Linux
title  Arch Linux
root   (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-linux root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/728c4820-b287-464e-b25c-82a1c245311e ro quiet vga=773
initrd /initramfs-linux.img

I'm going out on a limb here and claiming this topic as SOLVED.
