Installation on usb flash drive
 
I have a 4 gig thumb drive. I want to boot puppy 3.01 from it and get rid of having to use the CD to boot, but I can't find out how to install puppy 3.01 on it.
Please someone help me, I am old and not too bright
Thanks

Good luck. Using Linux is bright by definition, and rejuvenating by nature!

what i did was burn the iso because the universal installer wasnt installing everything correctly, then i just copied the files form the cd to the flashdrive renaming isolinux.cfg to syslinux.cfg and it works fine

thanks dranas.
Just to be clear, let me go thru the procedure. (I am using Kubuntu.)
I download a live iso and burn it to a cd which I then copy to my clear 4 gig flash drive. I then set my bios to boot to the flash drive and install "710" from there after it has loaded?
That sounds simpler then the pendrive procedure suggestion from rashok which I was preparing to follow when your suggestion came thru.

Thanks to both of you
pete.

just remember to change isolinux to syslinux and you should be fine

Thanks, it may be several days before I report back. Merry Christmas
