Boot problem with puppy 1.0.6 on notebook - simple solution.
I've just found a simple solution to the boot problem on my Fujitsu-Siemens C-1020 notebook.
I just "remastered" Puppy using "Setup --> Alienx simple remaster-CD" without changing anything (except removing the hardware setup I had made during startup)
... works great for me, hopefully for you guys too.

What is different?[/quote]
Using the original image (puppy-1.0.6-mozilla.iso) I got the puppy splash screen saying that kernel image 1 could not be found. From here I could not proceed booting.
After remastering on my desktop computer using the Alienx-script, instead of the splash screen a simple console appears offering the 5 boot options. It is also saying the boot CD-ROM type to be "non-emulation booting".
I don't really know about the boot process in Linux but as the script seems to generate also a new image.gz I assume that it has to do with that.
I had a similar problem using Kanotix-live-CD some month ago. Kano then offered a patch for the ISO-file that exchanged the boot image to "old boot image". It then worked without problems.
