I just installed Zenwalk, a new Slackware based distro (very efficient by the way - I can recommend it) and am trying to run Puppy 1.05 as a live CD over this.

The hard disk was formatted as reiserfs4 when I installed Zenwalk but Puppy cannot see this partition and complains that it needs an ext2 partition. It then cannot of course create a PUP001 file. So cannot therefore save any stuff to disk.

Might this need an alteration to the startup script? Trouble is I don't really know how to go about doing this Smile

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

Tronkel

if you go to the download page, in the 1.0.1 folder there is a blank pup001 file.
Download it and unzip it to C:\

Then try again. The live CD should find the file

Um, Rich, isn't that for a Windows partition?

Tronkel, if you have a DVD burner I suggest you try the multisession DVD version of Puppy. It actually works, though Barry is still ironing out some wrinkles.
