I have Puppy 1.0.2 installed on hard drive on a native fs2 partition /dev/hda1 with swap partition on /dev/hda3 and an old non working Vector Linux on /dev/hda2.

My CD Rom capability for this motherboard is dead so I am not able to use my 1.0.5 CD to upgrade. Anyone have any ideas how to upgrade without the CD Rom?

couldn't be easier, if you have an option 1 install

copy the 3 Puppy files from the iso to your hard drive ... that's it, you now have the latest version of Puppy

to access the files in the iso, just type something like this in a console window:
mount -o loop puppy.iso /mnt/data
you can now see the files in /mnt/data
type umount /mnt/dat to unmount the iso

if you have an option 2 install, it's not nearly as easy ... unless you have very limited ram, i don't see much point in an option 2 install
