Try using a smart boot manager floppy disk to boot the CD

Hi creativenate88
Check this thread http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/vie...0169409&t=3875
on the official Puppy forum. It contains download links and instructions to make a boot floppy from the downloaded iso.
Good luck
Bill

The smart boot manager floppy will be quicker and simpler to get started. Wakepup is meant to be a solution for the more general situation where the CD is an external USB drive for example.
