PostPosted: Tue 14 Oct 2008, 16:53    Post_subject: Does this method save your settings?  

I was wondering if the method described here, or anywhere in these forums and on this site, are a USB installation method that allows you to save any changes (installations, configurations etc.) to the USB drive when you shut down?

I am fairly new to linux and so far I have only used Ubuntu on a laptop and FaunOS on my USB drive. FaunOs saves any changes automatically at shutdown but it doesnt look like that particular distro will be geting any further support. So I am looking into new distros to use on USB flash drives, and Puppy looks awesome, but I need to be able to save changes. Thanks!

Is that not what this thread is? I couldn't really find any other threads on installing Puppy to a USB flash drive, but this thread seems like all you're doing is creating a "Live" CD on a USB flash drive. Thats why I asked if it saves any changes, it doesn't seem like you're really installing Puppy to the flash drive, just copying the CD contents and making it bootable.

That's what they call the "frugal" install, which is best for USB drives. Don't worry--it'll work just fine, and it will indeed save your configuration on shutdown.

I concur, UnetBootin is great.
Works like a dream for Puppy.
And then you can learn later to mod a Grub when you do an install


Yeah, that's right. UnetBootin works great. LiLi USB Creator also works nice. Only requirement is that you have to use fat32 filesystem.
