Hi,

Can anyone tell me how to install a boot loader on a USB device holding Puppy Linux? I'd like to install DOS on it as well, so that I can choose from either Linux or Dos when I start it up.

Regards,

/LS

Yeah Nameless Foo, how do you put GRUB on the USB device? Confused

Here's a little bit in the Puppy Wiki on booting from USB. If your BIOS will allow booting from USB then GRUB ought to work as a bootloader from the USB. It's just a matter of finding a way. Smile You might try searching the forum using the Search function at the top of the page.

Try this: download GRUB from the Pupget link Nameless Foo gave, onto the (empty) USB device you want to boot from. I think the Pupget GRUB might automagically install itself there. Then try booting from the USB device to see if your BIOS starts GRUB. If it does, then it's just a matter of configuring GRUB to continue the booting sequence. Good luck. Laughing
