puppy on hda


I installed puppy on a 256MB partition of my harddisk. Since Puppy is 64MB, I though this would not be a problem, so I was very surprised to see
Quote:
# df
/dev/hda9 24116 221581 7087 97% /
The freememapplet also shows red with 7MB. How come its not 192MB?

I skipped the grub install, because I already have grub in another distro. To boot puppy I added something like
Quote:
title puppy 2.01
root (hd0,8)
kernel /boot/vmlinux root=/dev/hda9
to the menu.lst. Should I add some boot options? Which boot option are available?

By the way, the Puppy drive mounter only shows the partitions hda9, hda10, ... and not hda1 to hda8.

Anyone?
If you installed puppy on harddisk, please show the output of df and, if you did a grub install, the menu.lst.

For what it's worth I do have a HD type 2 install, and here's the info you requesttd.

# GRUB configuration file '/boot/grub/menu.lst'.

# The backup copy of the MBR for drive '/dev/hda' is

# dd if=/boot/grub/mbr.hda.793 of=/dev/hda bs=512 count=1

# Linux bootable partition config ends
title Install GRUB to floppy disk (on /dev/fd0)
pause Insert a formatted floppy disk and press enter.
root (hd0,1)
setup (fd0)
pause Press enter to continue.
title Install GRUB to Linux partition (on /dev/hda2)
root (hd0,1)
setup (hd0,1)
pause Press enter to continue.
title - For help press 'c', then type: 'help'
root (hd0)
title - For usage examples, type: 'cat /boot/grub/usage.txt'
root (hd0)
I believe the ISO file is compressed and a HD type 2 install is not. Which would explain the discrepancy you found.
