If you have linux and grub2 on your hd you can boot USB installs using grub2 instead of the bios. This chance is already possible using the advanced menu of grub4dos if you use grub4dos. If you want to use grub2 enter the bios and choose to not boot Usb devices before cd and hd. Then create with geany a file named device.map in ubuntu's /boot/grub dir with the following content:

Code:
(hd0) /dev/sda
(hd1) /dev/sdb


Boot linux-ubuntu. Then in terminal:

Code:
sudo chmod 755 /boot/grub/device.map


Then open with gedit /etc/grub.d/40_custom and add the following menuentry:

Code:
menuentry "USB Boot" {
set root=(hd1)
chainloader +1
}


Save. Then in console:

Code:
sudo update-grub


Restarting you can choose this menu entry in grub2 to boot usb installs.

You are joking, I suppose. I have edited the first post. The tutorial is due to the guys who have ubuntu or other linuxes with grub2 (even in dual boot with windows) and use puppy as second or third choice (which can become the principal choice...): I have ubuntu, abandoned windows some years ago and I boot frugal puppies or usb installs of puppy from ubuntu's grub2 menu.
