2) This relates to EasyBCD. I tried using app this but I can't find a way to hook its menu options to Puppy copied to the same partition as Vista. Has anyone succeeded at this?

I've done it once. IIRC, there was an "Advanced" screen somewhere that let me manually add an entry for Puppy.

Thanks for the help,

@rcrsn51
I must have missed the advanced option that allowed manual editing of the boot menu's entries.

@Nooby
I couldn't find the menu.1st file, but will double check.

I don't have access to the computer at the mo, but next time your ideas will come in handy. Also I won't try and watch Forest Gump at the same ; -)

Under "Add Entry", there should be an option for "Neo-GRUB". Use that to make a standard GRUB entry for your Puppy.

I found it here.
name of file is menu.lst
placed in

/mnt/home/NST/

Maybe that Dir only exists if one install the Neosmart program Neogrub
rcrsn51 maybe did it anotehr way. I failed to find how NST
linked to win vista start up. rcrsn51 maybe know?

Can pfind maybe find these files?

I have to go to bed now so I read any answer delayed some 10 hours
from now my local time :I

@darkcity: think of it as "menu dot list" and you'll see what the extension should be Wink
