trouble in loading of lucid puppy 5.20

During booting of lupu 5.20 ,It starts searching for puppy files in computer disk drives,says boot partitions not found, dropping out to initial ram disk console then
/bin/sh: can't access tty: job control turned off
it remains at this position for ever.
I have been using lucid puppy 5.1.1 with pen drive through multibooting software of pendrivelinux. I have P2 with 256MB ram, hdd 10GB,usb pendrive 1 GB.

Boot from the flash drive. Right when it starts press F2;

Enter the following on the command line:
