Last week I bought a Samsung Chromebook (€ 199) and experimented with several versions of Ubuntu on it (dual boot ChromeOS-Ubuntu):
Ubuntu booting from SD-card,
Ubuntu booting from Usb-stick and
Ubuntu booting from the 16 Gb internal SSD.
The last version is the quickest one. In that case Ubuntu has 10 Gb and ChromeOS 6 Gb.

Now I want to do the same with Puppy. Is there anyone who can tell me how to do that?

Barry Kauler has been compiling the system apps for both Arm 6
and Arm 7.

According to internet the Samsung Chromebook is Arm 7.

Here's a picture of Puppy running on Arm 7 (a mele 1000 )

(By the way Raspberry pi is Arm 6.)

So in theory a person who was
an expert in the Chromebook bootup routine could put together
a distro very easily. Chromebook has a very unique bootup routine
from what I have read at lilliputing.com

Thanks for your information.
And yes, the installation of Linux is simple, as you see in these examples:

http://chromeos-cr48.blogspot.nl/

The most important part of the instruction of how to load Ubuntu is:

wget http://goo.gl/34v87; sudo bash 34v87

So I hope someone will come with an instruction like this one, but for Puppy.

An install script like that reminds of the work of noryb009
who put together a script to install puppy from the Windows side

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=61404

So several people on the forum do have the technical knowledge.

Here http://blogs.arm.com/software-enablement/848-running-linux-on-the-series-3-chromebook/ I read that it is possible to make a SD-card to boot the Chromebook with a Linux-version of your choice.

Could it be that this offers a solution for my question?

I read your weblink and it's quite complicated.

It would only be practical if a GUI installer was developed.

I got my Acer C720 chromebook to boot puppy from usb drive but no luck with the unique kernel modules for the chromebook touchpad.

I can't wait to get the touchpad functional and see if this low-priced (US $199) pc can be like a high-priced ultrabook.

The simple several steps I used getting the Acer Chromebook to boot from usb drive were found at this website:

wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Acer_C720_Chromebook

I dunno if the same steps would work for a Samsung Chromebook.

But without a working touchpad, I can't get anything accomplished. :/
