I just got a Sandisk Micro 512mb USB deal. Help! I just can't get this thing to boot. I copied the files from my bootable CD to the sandisk, but it won't boot. I saw 14 different suggestions about how to make the sandisk bootable, but none of them work. Anyone have specific instructions?

Just copying the files over won't make it bootable. Use the install puppy USB wizard to install puppy to the pendrive. Then you need to make sure your computer can boot from USB.
