Third is to hack your way through WOOF and find out the correct method used to make a puppy version. Let me know how to do it the right way if you go that route.
I call my methods sloppy because they do not correct the configuration Flags so may cause strange side effects.. But I can live with not having to reconstruct my puppy all over again. I find booting with puppy pfix=RAM solves most quirks, using sloppy remaster.

It's possible. I can manually do it. It's a task tiring and complicated. But I don't write english very well to explain the entire procedure. I can tell you that the core commands to build a new puppy precise 5.5 (for example) with your install are two:

2-build the new cd iso image with the same content of the original but the new puppy_precise_5.5.sfs:
