no appropriate miniroot is available error on hdd install and can't boot from grub
 
booted dsl from usb using plop floppy. ran install from boot menu, it copied to hda2 and then asked to install a bootloader and i said yes.

then i got the error: no appropriate miniroot is available

i tried to boot from grub for that partition but it says file not found. I tried a few different entries, none worked.

I have puppy on sda1.

Does anyone know the proper GRUB line to boot DSL?

edit:
kernel /boot/linux24 toram ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us apm=power-off vga=791 toram nomce noapic quiet BOOT_IMAGE=knoppix
initrd=/boot/minirt24.gz

it booted, but I got the green screen so vga to 788

btw, all I have on /dev/sda2 is linux24 and initrd24.gz, and it booted into DSL
changed, with puppy, the parameters.
Added Changes: vga=788 noapm nodma noscsi fb800x600 toram

worked. found my usb nic, but not my ralink wireless....
