puppy install on an extended ext3 partition?
I have tried searching various FAQs & posts, but still not sure how to go about this.
I'm impressed by puppy speed I get out of the live CD and would like something like this for day-to-day use on my machine....
I know about the FAT32 MS-DOS style install, but I already have a spare ext3 partition I would like to use, which lives on a logical partition in the extended portion of my hard-disk.
When I tried out the installer script on the Live CD, it asked me a fairly blunt question about whenther I wanted to proceed with an install on my primary IDE drive, "OK" "CANCEL"... it didn't ask me about which partition, or if I wanted to format anything or GRUB.
Seeing as I have (and wish to keep) my XP, KNOPPIX, fat and ext partitions I was not to happy with clicking on "OK", even if the relevent question come later on... I did not want to continue, in case it wiped my other stuff.
Is there a btter installer, or third party tool for doing this?
One other thing I've been wondering about is the possibility of having it running in-RAM, but loading from the hard-disk (rather than from the live CD). Is this possible from an ext3 partition, or will I bee needing MS-DOS to do this?
Thanks & regards,
