Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

An additional place to look for info - the main Puppy forum in the users forum. We have had a number of posts on that in the last six months or so. Admittedly our forum search is not the greatest but putting in the keywords boot and/or booting with USB devices should get you a starting place. Good luck.
Distribution: freebsd 6.1, suse 10.1, Centos 4.3, PCLOS Super Gamer
very simply how to install puppy on usb device
1. Back up all data from the usb device onto hd or cd etc.
2. boot puppy live cd.
3. start>setup>install puppy on usb drive
4. then follow the wizard
5. I'm sure i don't need to say following points. In advanced bios change boot priority with usb device above hard drive (on mine it is 2cnd below cd)
Tracer009, we'll need more info to solve this one. Some BIOses won't boot from USB. Some will boot only from USB that looks like a ZIP drive, some only from a USB floppy.
I have only ever used one USB stick, but that was recognised by my portable's BIOS as a hard disk and booted flawlessly. So it is possbile to make it work, at least under the right circumstances.
Please tell us exactly what choices you made when you installed Puppy to the floppy.
I have another problem, i once successfully installed puppy linux but on my eee pc, it searched for the .sfs files in computer disk drive and it couldn't find pup_301.sfs but when i looked on my usb, the file was there... anyone suggestions?
