Syslinux.cfg from the last Wary (or Puppy) Linux install on usb


Hello there,
I loaded the latest available warry iso and extracted the files onto an USB stick (with other distros like partedmagic etc).
I am not so sure how should looks the syslinux command for starting puppy (warry).
So, can somebody post here the latest content of the syslinux.cfg file of a wary usb installation?
Thanks!

This is from a bootable flash drive I made. The syslinux.cfg is:

default vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 initrd=initrd.gz PMEDIA=usbflash

I also have a file on the drive called USBFLASH that is required.
It is an empty file that is used to designate the device for booting purposes.
You can make it by opening a terminal, navigate to /mnt/your_usb_device and then typing touch USBFLASH.

here is the solution: it works on a sd card 8GB (on usb adapter) with extlinux
and on a CF card 8GB (on IDE adapter) with extlinux


#
label puppy warry linux
menu label puppy warry linux
kernel /boot/warry/vmlinuz
append pmedia=ideflash psubdir=boot/warry lang=en pkeys=de
initrd /boot/warry/initrd.gz
#
#
label lucid puppy linux
menu label lucid puppy linux
kernel /boot/lupu/vmlinuz
append pmedia=ideflash psubdir=boot/lupu lang=en pkeys=de
initrd /boot/lupu/initrd.gz
