Is there any solution to this that I can present to others? I am not looking for command line stuff, but rather some simple method that can be used from ANY puppy whereas:

You chose a iso file

You chose the destination USB flashdrive.

Your done.(in a GUI)

This is a huge problem i think, as you can only (unless you do command line this and that) make Puppy bootable.

Anyone that has any idea on how to go about such?

Its a shame if one needs to have Windows or another Linux distribution ONLY to have that done i a GUI.

Right now I HAD it with Unetbootin in Ubuntu, but forgot my password:-(
And even if I love Puppy, that does not mean I do not need others for tools like WifiSlack etc.

Hope for some great answers:-)

How To Do A USB Frugal Install Of Puppy Linux...
He's showing it for Slacko, although the method would apply to pretty much ANY Puppy methinks.
And the work can be done using ANY Linux distro.

It worked very well.. Guess i forgot about the latest features of Grub4Dos...

a excellent program:-)

Thanks...

But yet this only helps me, but not all em others out there.

Hopefully there will one day be a feature in the right click menu on a usb drive that has "install ISO", so that more folks can enjoy this:-)

@rcrsn51

I did have a look at that, but the video and method as seen above is by far more easy and does the job. I just tested WifiSlack 4.4 and the "job was done" in less than 5 minutes and then it was running.

My intention is sometimes just to try a distro without burning money( a CD or DVD), reboot into it and see if it deserves a partition.

I learn as i go and now there will be folders containing the major Puppys for Puppy kind of projects. But sometimes one needs special tools and I do not want to ask devs to make stuff that other distroes are specially made to do.

Command line stuff is like "last resort" to me and I like GUI.

But thanks... I will test stuff now like nobody's business:-)

2018 i use ISOBOOTER a lot now, for playing with some New OS, alwalys multiboot beside a Puppy Linux, for controls and adjustments.
Isobooter is quite a perfect boot system
but to change one iso in the panel is impossible, isn'it ?
