big remasters on old machines
if you dont have enough ram some of the large puplets or remasters will fail to run. sync error, kernel panic whatever.
boot the machine with a regular puppy, run your gparted. get some swap space allocated. run the universal installer. switch your regular puppy out for the large remaster before it starts copying from the cd.
i tried this when my 301 remaster was 290megs, my test machine had 192 megs of ram and no swap. it worked like a charm. i dont see why this wouldnt work for other puplets or remasters.
i know its not very techinical but it will get your oversized remaster onto an older machine. i like using a linuxish hard drive install with a nice swap on old machines.
