I have gotten past the booting problem as well as a problem with some missing alsa files that were keeping me from being able to get the sound card active.

Seems it was sticking on "modprobe usb-ohci" when I had it in a script. By sticking, I mean that it completly disabled my ps2 keyboard. It was odd because I could do the "modprobe usb-ohci" by typing it in manually and it would not stick. I ended up just doing "modprobe usb-storage" and "modprobe ehci-hcd" in my script and that worked.

I just need to clean up a few things to make it neater as well as shave off as many bytes as I can, since I am about a megabyte over my 8 meg target size.

To install, I made a dos partition on either a hard drive or a compact flash card in a CF-IDE adapter. Unzip and copy the files to the dos partition. Boot a puppy cd and run "syslinux /dev/hda1" or whatever your partition is. Make sure the dos partition is set to be active or bootable with fdisk.

my mpd.conf file is expecting to find the playlist and music directories on /mnt/sda1

mpd starts as I wanted it to upon boot, loads my playlist, sets repeat on, and starts playing

Thanks to MU, you can now download the latest version of pico_pup
