Subject description: easy to follow instructions
 

You use a native Linux tool to erase drives instead of using third-party apps.

Command lines to follow are here : https://www.ryananddebi.com/2014/12/24/linux-using-dd-to-erase-a-hard-drive-using-pv-to-view-progress/

UPDATE : sudo is not needed on Puppy.

dd is also useful to burn an ISO on a flash drive :

Let us assume your USB is identified as sdb, then copy and paste this line for the 32 bit kernels:
dd bs=4M if=BionicDog32_2018-06-04.iso of=/dev/sdb && sync

and this one for the 64 bit one:
dd bs=4M if=BionicDog64-Cinnamon-ETP_2018-08-27.iso of=/dev/sdb && sync

You always forget to mention that sudo is not needed on Puppy, labbe5!
