Sub_title: FIXED! Bad BIOS causes most laptops to fail on second session

Using gujin in place of other boot loaders gets around bad BIOS.

Here is a snippet of code to add after the CD section in the Makefile for gujin
   make clean dep tinycdrom instboot
   rm -rf /tmp/cdrom
   mkdir /tmp/cdrom
   ./instboot tinycdrom.bin /tmp/cdrom/tiny.bcd --stop_emulation=0 --cmdline=" pmedia=cd"
   cp /boot/* /tmp/cdrom
   -growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -untranslated-filenames -V PuppyLinux -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -b tiny.bcd /tmp/cdrom
   rm -rf /tmp/cdrom

copy files you wish to burn into /boot (does not exist in puppy) and
call this within gujin directory

make CDdvd

automagically burns DVD [best results use DVD+RW not DVD-R as recommended else where]

or use attached tiny.gz like such

growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -untranslated-filenames -V PuppyLinux -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -b tiny.gz /tmp/cdrom

Description  rename as needed it is not compressed

Filename  tiny.gz

I replaced isolinux.bin with tiny.gz as the bootloader using isomaster but that cannot be right as I simply got 'press any key to reboot' though it was detected.
