I have a number of different partitions for testing puppy versions. Each version is specific to a partition.

I would like to maintain separate pupsave files for each test version.

What boot command do I need to use with grub to force puppy to only look for my pupsave file on a specific partition.

with Puppy 1.x, it's easy, just add the kernel parameter PHOME=hda5 etc etc

this does not work for Puppy 2.x, but Puppy 214BETA supposedly supports a new boot parameter, PDEV1, which can specify the partition in which Puppy is installed ... see: http://www.puppyos.com/download/release-2.14.htm

Use the hide and unhide commands in Grub.

Here is a copy of my Grub menu.lst file for multiple Puppies plus Windows XP:

Code:
title WindowsXP
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

title PuppyLinux-2.14CE
hide (hd0,7)
hide (hd0,6)
unhide (hd0,1)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0
initrd /initrd.gz

title PuppyLinux-2.13-Frugal
hide (hd0,1)
hide (hd0,6)
unhide (hd0,7)
root (hd0,7)
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0
initrd /initrd.gz

title PuppyLinux-2.12-FullInstall
hide (hd0,7)
unhide (hd0,6)
kernel (hd0,6)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda7 ro splash=silent


Hope that helps.

Thanks for the link. I had read the 2.14 features but missed that. Will test out tonight.
