Hello all,

I've just found a simple solution to the boot problem on my Fujitsu-Siemens C-1020 notebook.
I just "remastered" Puppy using "Setup --> Alienx simple remaster-CD" without changing anything (except removing the hardware setup I had made during startup)

... works great for me, hopefully for you guys too.

Using the original image (puppy-1.0.6-mozilla.iso) I got the puppy splash screen saying that kernel image 1 could not be found. From here I could not proceed booting.

After remastering on my desktop computer using the Alienx-script, instead of the splash screen a simple console appears offering the 5 boot options. It is also saying the boot CD-ROM type to be "non-emulation booting".

I don't really know about the boot process in Linux but as the script seems to generate also a new image.gz I assume that it has to do with that.

I had a similar problem using Kanotix-live-CD some month ago. Kano then offered a patch for the ISO-file that exchanged the boot image to "old boot image". It then worked without problems.

Does this information help you?

Axel.

No...
Can you kindly let me know the contents of the new isolinux.cfg file on the CD?
