Hi,
I am currently in Japan and want to set up a USB drive with Puppy Chubby on it.
It's pretty hard to get info in Japan, that I can understand, on the drives and whether or not they will handle Linux (Puppy) and be bootable etc.
What I am considering doing is just buying a Buffalo Clip Drive and trying it out. They are not cheap though.
Do you think this will work? Could I assume that 99.9% percent of drives would work and there this popular brand and style should too?
I am also wanting the drive to work on USB1.1 and USB2.0 - so you think I can assume this too (with my .1% chance of error!!!)?
woof woof,

By the way, folks, I installed Puppy on a usb dongle using a 1 gig CF card, and it booted a couple of times all right, although it was hanging while finding the hard disk... then continued, but with errors, said "hard disk is not ready" or something.

I could use Puppy, but it didn't recognize the hard disk at all.

Then, after 4-5 successful boots, my BIOS changed itself (strange!!), and now I cannot boot my HP Omnibook 6100 from the USB port AT ALL. Simply the option (which was there before) is GONE. I can't configure the BIOS to boot from the USB port, because that option is simply MISSING.

If anyone would have an idea, why it's so... I am about to flash the BIOS, but that's a risky and time-consuming operation, not to mention I simply don't have a floppy drive, and this operation would require a floppy drive.. so I am desperate.

Don't know what made my BIOS eliminate the boot-from-USB option, but I don't seem to be able to get it back and I am pretty frustrated at the moment...

Thanks for any idea,

Zsolt
