You need to make sda5 (D/) smaller.


Can't I just Shrink sda5 by 20gb
Then create another Partiton within sda3 ?

Yes that is what I am explaining how to do.
Read my previous post again. Make sure to backup sda5 data before you do this. The way you backed up before will work for that.

Well, OK.
My D:\ now looks like:


Now, how to Full-Install Puppy 5.4 from LiveUsb to HD ?
I see an article here:
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/InstallationFullHDD
The only one that seems to apply is:
http://www.mygnulinux.com/?p=385

But it has some image docs missing, like:

And also it is for Grub.
Shouldn't I use Grub4Dos ?

Is there an Install Docs for using Grub4Dos (if that is what I need) ?

Thanks...vm

You finally got a good usable Linux formatted partition. sda6
Well done!

However, you do notice you have 29GB of unallocated space, in the extended partition sda3, that can still be made into usable logical partition(s)?

Yes I would use Grub4dos.
The menu->System-> Grub4dos Bootloader Config is what to run to load Grub4dos.
If you just choose the default option settings it should work OK. (There is help info in program)

Full install steps:

Boot using the Slacko USB.

1. Setup hard drive with a Linux partition. You have.
2. Run the Puppy universal installer.
select the option install to internal IDE/ SATA hard drive.
3. Choose partition sda6 for install location.
Choose full install option.
4. Follow the instructions on the next few pages.
5. Once you have finished and received the message that you successfully installed the system on your desired medium you should now
install a boot loader.
6. Run Grub4Dos Bootloader Config.
7. When Grub4dos is completed install is complete.
8. Reboot computer not using the Slacko USB.

Should boot to a boot menu with entries as to what operating system to run. Windows or Puppy.
Select Slacko entry.
(First entry will boot if you make no choice)
