I have booted off my usb flash drive as a ms-dos boot disk, so I can boot with it.
I made the puppy cd for 1.03 and it boots too and works wonderfully,
When I try to make a usb flash drive puppy install using the script thats on the cd puppy it works fine, it gets all four files on the drive.
I am running a dell dimension 8400 and when i reboot to use the drive it shows the config lines and just keeps rebooting.
I have tried many things on the forum, I'm a little confused about whether I should be using FAT or FAT32.
I'd like puppy to just boot without having to go through dos or a bootloader when the drive is plugged in.
please help.

Have you read Barry's page " My PC can't boot from USB|CD" on the main Puppy site, you can access it from the Flash Puppy page.
