Well I am currently running Puppy on a 16gig flash dive and it seems to be doing pretty well. Everything is really snappy and it was fairly easy to do. I am not sure if it is the best one though.

Is there a guide or do I just use unetbooting to make it work?? I've used unetbooting before to do other distros, but didn't know if puppy had a special way to work??

puppy rarely works for me when I boot it off a cd and try to save to anything other then an internal hard drive..probably just me not doing something right..lol

Edit: What package manager does it use?? Also, is there a way to install any Linux app on any Linux distro or does it have to be that specific package manager??

I burned the latest Puppy .iso to a cd, and then you use the Bootflash and use all the recommended settings. Then when it says install puppy close that and run the puppy universal installer. when the yellow box pops up hit enter for all, but the last one i think. That you do a char and then enter. It is if you have more than 512mb of ram or something.

If i can find the guide i used i will post it in here.

Thanks man.

I've got 2 gigs of ram so I should be good.

Have you ever used unetbooting?? It's easy for Linux distrs..It makes the usb drive act like a cd i guess..it puts the files on the usb drive in the right order to boot and install off the usb..but unsure if it'll work to install to usb.

if you find the guide, that would be awesome.

Fixing to crash. Gotta work early tomorrow. lol

Puppy only takes up about 100mb of space, so that is more than enough.

I have never used unetbooting before, so i can not help you with that one.

Additional Comment:

Here is the guide I used.http://puppylinux.org/main/Puppy430-...al-English.pdf
