I copied one over from another distro, maybe renaming the symlink head-BB-NOTUSED to just head may do it.

Haven't gotten that far yet. Being addicted to compiling nowadays, I'm still stuck at...
Code:
# gunzip linux_kernel-2.6.27.4-dpup.tar.gz

gunzip: linux_kernel-2.6.27.4-dpup.tar.gz: invalid compressed data--format violated
Putting the tarball through XArchiver shows (scroll down to bottom of error message box) "Unexpected EOF in archive", just after

/lib/modules/2.6.27.4/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.ko

is extracted.

G'day,
I tried a frugal install last night and got the red screen found by dejan555.
Kept going of course to a frugal install via the universal installer that presented me with quite a few oddities.
The choice for install my sda or sdb was incomplete - some details blank in dialog box. I clicked the upper line offered - it was in fact sda.
When I got to my partition for the sfs4-requiring Pups (it's sda7 for this computer) and selected this as the install partition, I could not find or mount the live CD to copy the files across (the latest Pups4 installer does let me locate the CD in one of the two optical drives I have). I had to use Pmount to mount the live CD.
Finally got an OK from the universal installer that it was done, so then I added the needed lines to the puppyfrugal.lst that I use for these in grub.
I re-booted - without saving as I do now for first-time frugals - and grub booted into dpup.
dpup started up OK (as a frugal from sda7), but without a Save file, I now needed to enter the keyboard and Xorg settings, plus set a time zone from a list which offers GMT+10 as Guam (but not Sydney or Brisbane???).
Got the drab grey woof display with the bunched up drive icons at the bottom right of the screen so this looked OK and normal, like all other recent woof Pups. Relocated the 30-odd drive icons into two rows and went to reboot.
When I got to set up the Save file section, I was not offered a choice of save file size (usually 512MB). When I looked at the options to proceed with the save file for dpup, the default save file size was -1024MB (yes, MINUS!). Hitting Enter did not create a Save file with this negatively sized Save file so restarting the dpup476 frugal was a repeat of entering keyboard, Guam and Xorg.
So I too have had tlchost's problems with no Save file, and oh yes, no turn-off after "System halted."

I hope my above gun and fames help you find the answers to these frugal install problems. Haven't tried a Full.
