Unhappy no boot due to corrupt etc/rc.d/rc.local0

Hello, I am a complete newbie in (Puppy) Linux, migrating from M$ Windows.

I installed Puppy on my HDD without any problems, even after subsequent reboots.

However, after having configured my WLAN USB adapter and my souncard with the default Puppy installers, my Puppy went dead on reboot.
I get a # prompt right after a messages of loading etc/rc.d/rc.local personal settings.

Booting from CD with pfix=purge did not solve my problem.

I mounted my puppy partition and had a look at etc/rc.d/rc.local
Nothing special there, just comments.

However, I recalled that both the WLAN and the soundcard installers reported having made changes to etc/rc.d/rc.local0 (note the zero)

Can I simply get the the rc.local0 from the CD to replace my corrupt rc.local0 on the HDD, or is there more to this?

PS: I suspect the reason why I ran into this problem is probably because I left the WinXP driver on the Windows NTFS partition instead of making a copy on the Linux partition.

Many thanks in advance for your help!
