I have seen a few machines that won't start a Live CD that uses GRUB as the bootloader. I suspect that it's a BIOS issue. (Most CD's use isolinux as the bootloader.)

However, you could always use another Puppy to extract the core files from the Macpup ISO and do a manual frugal install.

The CD I burned has the 11 files that is shown in

http://hardkap.net/forums/topic/forum-issues

isolinux.bin is one of those files!

I have a frugal install of 3.01 on hda4 so I thought, rename any of those files that may conflict and copy the files from the CD across.

Not so easy. I get input/output errors when trying to copy macpup_528.sfs and vmlinuz. Hmm!

An update to my previous post.

I checked the md5sum of the iso and it was correct. Burned another CD and it verified as OK.

I am using macpup to post this.

That looks to me like grub failing to find the kernel
Try checking the kernel line in menu.lst, or see if the files are in a sub-directory...?

Puppy 3.01 uses older .sfs version . Can't handle newer .sfs's . isolinux.bin is included in the .ISO so the remaster script will work. I decided not to customize that.

there is a program called multiboot which has a gui for booting multiple iso's for a pen drive.

Yes I'm Aware of PuppyLuvrs MultiPup CD / DVD Creator in Fact You'll Notice My Presence in that Forum Thread, But ideally wot I Really want is a way of Booting from Raw isos on the Fly ( WithOut eXtracting them ), from USB Flash Drive.

Maybe as Aitch has Suggested Loopback Mounting will do this? But I've been Sum wot Distracted of late Maphia Matters ( ie. Family ) & I'm Still Reading ( Which I'm Real Slow @ ), Researching & eXperimenting...

But Any Other Suggestions Certainly Welcome!

Backi , start over with a new save file. Unload the e mixer module before you save After you boot the save file first time download and install the revert-01.pet form the test folder on my macpup page. Reboot and then adjust alsa. I think our pups don't like you any more dude, You have had problems with the last few.Sorry.
