Try using a smart boot manager floppy disk to boot the CD

Hi creativenate88
Check this thread
on the official Puppy forum. It contains download links and instructions to make a boot floppy from the downloaded iso.
Good luck

The smart boot manager floppy will be quicker and simpler to get started. Wakepup is meant to be a solution for the more general situation where the CD is an external USB drive for example.
