I am trying to make a version of Puppy on USB hard drive (very small 2.2 gigabyte) that will boot. The partition on the USB hard drive is a Linux ext 2. I had some luck with it. I am running into the Grub error 17 (can not mount the partition). I suscept that it may be from the device specification used by Grub. I have not used Grub much so it may be an error on my part. The BIOS does see the device and Grub does start.

I have noticed that Puppy normally does not have usb-storage load at startup. Do I have to pass to the kernel to load usb-storage. Thank you in advance for any help on this.

Enjoy life, Just Greg

Puppy will load usb-storage module if PSLEEP parameter is defined in isolinux.cfg or syslinux.cfg file.

The actual script that does this is /etc/rc.d/rc.modules

I don't know what value would be needed for a real hard drive though. For USB2 flash devices we need PSLEEP=5 (I think) and for USB1 PSLEEP=25.
...that's in seconds.
