Catdude has made it very clear, but I did say look in /boot/syslinux.

Subject description: porteus (running as root)
 

Hi,

I found a 32bit version porteus which is very very ram efficient. This version is very similar to puppy and it is all running as root.

download location link:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6grnkmXQ5cjY29sUThiSEhGV28


System automatically login as root (root's password is "toor" )


Each xzm file is mounted individually and very very little ram is used.

This distro seems to be created by an Asian. To change locale to English, have to edit /etc/profile.d/lang.sh and /etc/profile.d/lang.csh (these 2 files are contained within 04-locale.xzm)

If you dont want to burn CD, just copy the entire folder "porteus" within the iso file to your any root directory of your any partition and then modify your menu.lst as below(replace "hd0,1" with appropriate number where your porteus folder resides ) :

title BOOT Porteus32
root (hd0,1)
kernel /porteus/vmlinuz
initrd /porteus/initrd.xz

According to my observation, This distro saves you an old computer which would otherwise be thrown away as rubbish.

One main feature of this iso file is that, when burn to CD or write to USB, it is able to boot uefi machine. I have successfully boot two different uefi machines (one of which cannot be boot by any version of Fatdog64).

Happy Linuxing
