Which file should I edit to have "puppy pmedia=usbflash" as the default option to boot off of the Cdrom? I need this because not only my laptop does not boot from usb it also has a broken display (I can't have a display next to the laptop in it's intended location).

I would also like to ask which version of puppy any of you would recommend ( I need samba+mpd+ssh on this puppy)

thanks a bunch,

To boot a usb with a cd; use the cd with the same os the flash
has on it. When it gets to boot screen, type "puppy pmedia=
usbflash". (no quotes)

I've been using the tools in the first post of this thread for 2-3 years. They should really be included with the Puppy. Just click an icon and create the multi-boot tool, etc.

I've found multi-boot useful for running Puppy in a VirtualBox machine. VB doesn't boot from USB device. It will boot from a .iso image. I create the .iso image using the multi-boot tool, configure VB to boot from that .iso. Then I'm able to boot from my USB flash drive which contains Puppy.
