For windows2000/XP users, if you don't want to mess up with your harddisk, you can try this.

compare this to boot from CD, the advantage is you can put floppy in/out without power up the pc. and don't need to put cd in or get it out cdrom drive in a hurry when you boot your pc.

After installed four files into your harddisk(NTFS),

you can use a floppy to boot into puppy linux

The four files are vmlinuz, crams.fs, image.gz, pupp001

1. make a bootable floppy on a windows 98 machine.
2. download linld.com from web or get it from wakepup disk
3. download ntfsdos from sysinternals.
4. put linld.com and ntfsdos in the floppy
5. copy idecd*.cfg from wakepup into your floppy
6. boot from floppy
7. type ntfsdos
8. check the output message on your screen
9. assume the ntfs partition letter is D
10. type linld.com image=d:\vmlinuz initrd=d:\image.gz cl=@idecd1.cfg

that's it.

you can put next two line in the autoexec.bat so next time it will be automatically.

ntfsdos
linld.com image=d:\vmlinuz initrd=d:\image.gz cl=@idecd1.cfg
