Well I got everything working that I wanted to, but I'm having trouble creating the new iso. I'll keep working on it and post when it's done.

The simplest way is to burn it to CD then boot a PC, and from within Puppy, use Universal Installer to prepare a USB or SD card.

There are utilities for opening an ISO file and getting the files from there (example, MagicISO for Windows). Then you can follow this tutorial:
http://minipc.org/safepup/index.php?file=JustGreg%20Tutorials.htm
But you have to use vmlinuz, initrd.gz, pup_301.sfs and zdrv_301.sfs from the pupeee ISO.

Personally I use an external USB CD drive and boot the eeepc off of that. Once it is booted up into Pupeee I can then install it to SD card or the internal SSD drive. I may just make an installer scrip to put Pupeee on the internal drive with a dual boot setup.

New iso uploaded. See the first post. When I get a chance I will make a zip file for it so it will be easier to install for people without an external CD drive.

Thanks again for the new version I will try try it out again and use big_bass's suggestion although, im not sure what 848X480 will look like if anyone else is using it on the eeepc maybe they can post some suggestions on what works best for them. I am very interested in dvw86 topic on dual booting and what he is running on his, As he stated he may just make an installer script to put Pupeee on the internal drive with a dual boot setup. Since I have little skills with linux I am interested in seeing what comes up with. I very much like the puppy you made an plan on installing it to mine thanks again everyone for your insight and help.

I am dual booting the default xandros Linux that came with the Eeepc and Pupeee. You can use this post as a guide.

Thanks for the Pup.

I have it downloaded and will get it ready on an SD card while I wait for my eeepc to turn up.

Four in the store on Thursday. When I went in Saturday with my money all were gone. Hope the next shipment turns up in the next week as promised.

Thanks again,

John Lewis

Well I couldn"t configure it on the ssd although, big_bass did make the menu1st for me. I did manage to install it back on a sd card and it is working great. I am very happy with it and thanks again for helping me out and others that need something easy and just works. I would like some more information than what is posted about getting the webcab to work. And yes it is enabled in bios. I am a happy pupian and have been ever since the day I came across puppy linux. I hope that you will continue with this project as it is a wonderful edition. [/img]

I downloaded the old iso have the new one now and webcam is working I do have a problem still with it shutting down still I have to depress the power button still to get it to totally powereoff after doing a shutdown I have had this problem before with older versions of puppy like 212 not sure why that is. Also I have a problem getting conky to read temp I have conky configured and added modprobe thermal to rc.local but no go. Then alienjeff suggested to add "sleep 5" just under where I added modprobe temp in the local.rc file all is good now. As for the background its not that good had to stretch it but here it is if you like it amlucia.http://img.flashtux.org/img132665020abex88e1752.jpg I'm not sure if i will not just boot pupeee from sd card as it does quite well from sd as it boots faster that way I really do enjoy finally having puppy linux on my eeepc its exactly why I got it for to begin with. Thanks dvw86 for sharing this with us.

As far as the shut down issue goes, I have this from time to time but not always. I even noticed it with the default Xandros OS that came with the Eeepc.

Another person asked about how to get the touchpad to scroll. Alas, that's the same problem I'm having. We got Puppy installed on SD cards and it's running fine on the Eeepc (which is a great feat for Linux newbies!). Please, does someone know how to get the touchpad to scroll? THANKS! And thanks to the creator of the program - it's awesome!
