Have you tried the WakePup floppy? That will let you boot a Puppy CD from a USB CD-ROM drive.

The link for info and download is here: http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=3875

EDIT: I should mention that if you boot Puppy from a USB CD-ROM, Puppy's startup script won't find usr_cram.fs because the script doesn't look for it on /dev/sda1, only on /dev/hdc IIRC.

To get around that problem, you need to copy usr_cram.fs to the hard disk. Then the script will find it.

Perhaps someone can hack the startup script so it will look for usr_cram.fs on /dev/sda1? Smile
