I have the exact problem but I recognize that this is not related to RAM size. I am using a IBM T22 with 256M RAM.

I can run the live CD and the USB key was built from the same live CD.

Make the following changes to tiny.exe command line on the floppy:

PROOTFS=ext2 PFILE=cd

Then the pup100 will not be created on the USB key. Your error messages may relate to not enough USB file space for pup100.

Remove any files/folders on the USB key except:

image.gz, pupxusb, usr_cram.fs, vmlinux

I have exactly the same error messages before and the above changes work even on a 64MB USB key.

Let us know whether these changes work for you.

Same problem. I looked at the files on the usb stick and saw the spot directory with a readme in it. Thought that I could login as spot but that did not work.

I have Redhat 7.2 on part of my hard drive on my old Gateway (166 Mhz). I thought that maybe there was some interference with Puppy and RH7.2. I can't read all the error messages.

I will let you know if I learn anything.

This tiny.exe command line works for a 64M USB key without creating pup100 on USB key.

tiny.exe C:\vmlinuz C:\image.gz root=/dev/ram0 PHOME=sda1 PFILE=cd PSLEEP=25
