Hi All,
i have a strange problem with running several different versions of puppy from one usb stick. I have created a bootable stick with grub and made a subfolder for each puppy version and a menu.lst. the stick boots quick and shows the menu.lst, i can select a version and this boots and works fine - but the boot process after selecting a version until it really starts is VERY slow. not sure if my menu.lst is not missing something important.
here is an example entry:

title Precise 561
kernel /precise561/vmlinuz pmedia=usb pfix=ram
initrd /precise561/initrd.gz

hi oliver69,

possibly it's because you need to specify a directory with 'psubdir' so puppy doesn't have to search.....eg
Code:
kernel /precise561/vmlinuz   psubdir=precise561 pmedia=usb pfix=ram


Note: if you run grub4dos from the puppy menu>>system>>grub4dos , and point it at the usb, it should do this automatically, for you for all your pups.
