If you downloaded the ISO for it, it already contains all the files.
What OS are you running now?
It makes a difference in how you install it.
If you are already running a version of linux, and have Grub for dos installed, you do not even have to burn a CD.
For a frugal install with an existing version of linux installed, you would create a directory for Puppy 214, click on the Puppy 214 ISO file to mount it, and copy vmlinuz, initrd.gz, and puppy214.sfs to the created directory.
Then edit menu.list to add it to your boot menu.
There are instructions on Puppylinux.org for a frugal install of Puppy, so I am not going to go into the details.
Also, as to Puppy forums, there are this forum, murga-linux.com/puppy/, and puppylinuxforum.org
For information, there are puppylinuxfaq.org, and puppylinux.org
That should give you a few places for Puppy.
