I'm trying to get "FATgamespup-216.iso" to boot up on my Dell D505 M processor. 1.5 gigs memory.
plus i have speciality desktop(a rebranded Lina-Lite.i think) installed on one of my partitions.
other partions have Xubuntu pinguyOS AND wATToS Installed (all on a 60 gig drive)
Unetbootin was my first choice but it hangs half way through saying it can't find /bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off.
Is there a better way to get it up and running as I'm curious to see Fatgamespup in action!
P.s i ran out of blank discs to burn!

Curious to ask: What are you using to post to the forum with?

And, what do you have that actually runs on the D505?

Do you have the ISO file on the HDD of the D505? Do you have any bootable CDs that boot the D505, today?

Are you familiar with Puppy tools to setup your D505 to boot Puppy?

I'm asking so that we know what alternatives you can use to boot the D505 that you're have troubles with.

Lastly, there is an author's thread here. Might want to consider posting to that thread where the author might see to help.

Just some questions so that we can assist.

@donkeymilk

quickest way to try is with a frugal install -
make a folder on the main/first partition called 'gamepup' (for example)
extract all of the files from the iso into that folder
assuming you have grub installed as your boot loader (where you choose your os) - put this code in the menu.lst file

Code:
title Puppy Linux 2.17.1
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/gamepup/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 PMEDIA=idehd PDEV1=hda1 psubdir=boot/gamepup
initrd (hd0,0)/boot/gamepup/initrd.gz
boot


you will need to change hda1 and idehd to sda1 and satahd if you have a sata hardrive

info from the really helpful lin'n'win project -
