I've tried to make a multi-session live-CD using 1.04
I can get the CD burned, and the first time I use the CD it actually boots.
When I shut down Puppy, it writes the user data back to CD as it should.
However, the CD then becomes un-bootable. Whenever I try booting again from the multi-session live-CD, the PC simply doesn't recognized it as a bootable CD and I end up booting Windows off the HD.
I've tried it with CD-R and CD-RW with the same result.
Any suggestions?

This seems to be a common problem. An interesting solution to the problem was posted here, although it won't be much help to you if you don't have a USB key. My suggestion would be to have a read through that post and see if it helps.

Yes, it seems like you're having exactly the same problem I was having when I made that post. If you don't have a USB key, they are VERY inexpensive and VERY convenient to have around. I suggest you check the wiki for keys that are known to be reliable with puppy (or at least are good for booting), and then go to www.pricewatch.com and pick one up. Let us know if my trick works for you!
