I trying to use Grub4Dos to boot Puppy Dingo Alpha (11 Jan) on a SD card to use with the Eee PC. I am not have much luck. Grub4Dos is finding the menu.lst for GNU Grub on the Eee PC solid state drive. I have the Grub4Dos loader (grldr) and a menu.lst on the SD card. I suspect there is a problem with the my configuration file. Here is the contents of a the menu.lst
Code:

# This is a sample menu.lst file for grub4dos. You should make some changes to it.
# The old install method of booting via the stage-files has been removed.
# Please install GRLDR boot strap code to MBR with the bootlace.com
# utility under DOS/Win9x or Linux.

color light-gray/blue black/light-gray
timeout 40
default /default

#Boot Dingo Alpha on Flash with MSDos Fat16
title Puppy Dingo on Flash on (hd1,0) on Eee PC
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/sdb1 pmedia=usbflash
initrd /initrd.gz
savedefault --wait=2
# End Grub4dos menu



Thank you in advance for any help.

here is the final menu.lst that work with the Eee PC

Code:

# This is a sample menu.lst file for grub4dos. You should make some changes to it.
# The old install method of booting via the stage-files has been removed.
# Please install GRLDR boot strap code to MBR with the bootlace.com
# utility under DOS/Win9x or Linux.

color light-gray/blue black/light-gray
timeout 40

find --set-root /pup_395.sfs
savedefault --wait=2

#Boot Dingo Alpha on Flash with MSDos Fat16
title Puppy Dingo on Flash with Eee PC
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/sdb1 pmedia=usbflash
initrd /initrd.gz
# End Grub4dos menu


Grub4dos does work. It is slower than Syslinux, but, does allow more options. The documentation on configuring is a bit rough. The boot times for syslinux is 52 seconds, and grub4dos is 59 seconds. Thanks for the help, Mu.
