Puppy 1.0.8 tries to create a 256MB pup100 file. Your flash key isn't big enough to hold it.

Solutions:

1. Move your installation to the hard disk.

2. Get a bigger flash key.

3. Drop back to Puppy 1.0.6 which will create only a 128MB pup100.

Possible solution: (not sure because I boot using grub not tiny, and my flash key is 2GB so space is not a problem) specify in its configuration file (menu.lst, isolinux.cfg or whatever) PFILE=pup100-none-131072 and see if that works.
