How to install Puppy Linux?

I installed puppy linux on my old laptop, but i cant run without the there a easy guide for this? The wikihow steps using CD, but for me using only the thumbdrive is enough. I just cant pass the grub option where it has option to get into OS , but need my flashdrive to be plugged on.

do you get the grub menu without the usb plugged in? Do you have any other systems installed(windows/linux)? what partition/folder was puppy installed in and was it a fugal or full install? What version of puppy did you install?

Download the ISO file from a trusted source, Burn it to CD, Bate live, Click Menu then [link removed] then Puppy universal installer, Install with Universal Installer. Choose the type of disk, Choose specific disk to install to, Choose the partition to install to, Confirm partition and disk, Choose where the installation files are, Ensure the CD is inserted, Choose between a frugal and full installation, The files get copied. The CD ejects, Grubconfig screen, Simple try to install grub automatically, Configure grub to use framebuffer console, Select grub partition, Installation finished.
Click Menu then Shutdown then Reboot computer.
