Hi everybody
I had an old laptop with a broken CD-drive (refused to read cd-r), but got puppy on it anyway.
I used a usb-disk case for the 2.5" laptop drive, which apeared to my "mother" linux system as /dev/sda
I changed permissions to write for /dev/sda as root
chmod +rw /dev/sda

I downloaded and installed qemu, and downloaded a puppy iso image.
then it was just to type

qemu -boot d -cdrom puppy-1.0.3-mozilla.iso -hda /dev/sda

and afterwards installed puppy to the virtual harddisk in the usual way.

Installed puppy and grub and put the harddisk back to the laptop. Nice to see puppy put life back to the machine:-)

Before I took the harddisk of the mothersystem, i tested puppy with
qemu -hda /dev/sda -user-net

Well done I feel this info would be useful on the wiki - but not sure where it would go

It would also need details
