I see some have problems installing to a USB pendrive so I have written up the installation procedure that works for me in the hopes that it might be of help.

There are many "independent apps with full lib". It means: They can be installed in "optional directory".
For ex: I want to Open Office 3 runs on my Puppy 4.12 full install (on HDD)
1. Mount OOxxx?sfs
2. Copy all contents of Open Office to /usr/local. You will have to directories named "/usr/local/openoffice" and "/usr/localorgopenoffice.org3"
3. Make these symlinks:
ln -s /usr/local/openoffice.org3/program/Open*.desktop /usr/share/applications
ln -s /usr/local/openoffice.org3/program/soffice /usr/local/bin
ln -s /usr/local/openoffice.org3/program/swriter /usr/local/bin
ln -s /usr/local/openoffice.org3/program/simpress /usr/local/bin
ln -s /usr/local/openoffice.org3/program/scalc /usr/local/bin
ln -s /usr/local/openoffice.org3/program/sdraw /usr/local/bin
4. Check out (You can click on *.desktop file or open rxvt and type swriter ...)

This tips will be useful? Please add your comments. TK

Thanks vanchutr I have mentioned your alias in the main post so people interested in installing OpenOffice on HDD can try your procedure.

Thanks Artie for the useful info.

A big thanks to KC1DI as I've struggled with the mounting of Songbird.sfs for some time. The tip works.

One thing worth mentioning, if you use songbird and your music is on a diffrent partition, don't forget to mount it before trying playing tracks.
Guess how I know?

PostPosted: Sun 04 Jan 2009, 23:27    Post_subject: usb pen and multiboot  

May be this is the easy and true way to make your usb pen bootable linux, dos ...

1. What do you need?
a.) winxp installed
b.) syslinux-3.72 -> google and download -> exctract this pack -> You will see this directory "win32"
c.) hp_usbfw.exe -> google and download (This is a HP_Utilitiy to format USB pen)

2. How to do - step by step

a. (e.g) Your USB pen named "f:" under WinXP

b. Use hp_usbfw.exe to format USB in Fat 32 format

c. Enter win32 directory and use this command: syslinux.exe -s f:
(Be caryfull !!! Note f: is the name of your USB pen)

d. After these steps you will see a file named "ldlinux.sys" on f: (your USB pen)

e. Create a new file, called syslinux.cfg, on the root of f: (same place with ldlinux.sys). The contents of syslinux.cfg cited as follow:

Code:

PROMPT 1

TIMEOUT 0

SAY 1=Linux; 2=DSL; 3=Hiren 9.6; 4=DOS Full; 5=MiPup; 6=TinyISO; 7=Woof2; 8=Pup 302

DEFAULT 1

#DISPLAY Menu.txt



label 1

kernel /411/vmlinuz

append initrd=/411/initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0 /pfix=ram PHOME=sda0



label 2
# Damn  Small Linux

kernel /dsl/linux24

append ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us apm=power-off vga=normal initrd=/dsl/minirt24.gz nomce noapic quiet BOOT_IMAGE=KNOPPIX



label 3

#title Emulate Hiren boot cd

kernel /dos.bss



label 4

#title DOS Full - Support CD

kernel /dos/memdisk

append initrd=/dos/bootimg.bin



label 5

kernel /mipup/vmlinuz

append initrd=/mipup/initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0 /pfix=ram PHOME=sda0



label 6

kernel /tinyiso/bzImage

append initrd=/tinyiso/tinycore.gz root=/dev/ram0 /pfix=ram PHOME=sda0



label 7

kernel /woof2/vmlinuz

append initrd=/woof2/initrd.gz pmedia=usbflash



label 8

kernel /302/vmlinuz

append initrd=/302/initrd.gz pmedia=usbflash


f.) Create the directory appropriate to your request. For example: I want to use Puppy 4.1.1, then I create a directory named 411 and copy these (3) files vmlinuz, initrd.gz, pup_411.sfs into 411 directory. (See item "label 1" in syslinux.cfg)

g.) Repeat step e) for other distro ...

h.) Now boot from your USB pen to check out

I cheat when doing installs on different media.

I have frugal installs in several places.

a) USB stick multiboot with Hiren, DigiWiz (PE XP), and a set of my own tools

b) USB hard drive multiboot as above

c) CD also multiboot as above

d) Local hard drive multiboot using Symon . I have seven OS versions on this one disk and a further seven on a secondary hard disk.

All of the Puppies are started from DOS using the WakePup utility.

All this means that to update ALL of them all I have to do is update one and then copy the updated files to the other media.

Smile Great thread Artie.
I learn new stuff all the time

for example if you are in a ROX folder
press the button under esc that is
`
You now get a terminal (not sure what you do next but can be useful) Very Happy

Thanks Lobster I haven't updated the main post for a while because I haven't been using my USB stick. I get very restless and have to try new things all the time but I'll check the information in the post and edit a bit. Right now I'm using a frugal install of MediaPup trying to teach myself video editing. Is there no limit to how many mistakes a person can make before he gets it right? There's something called a law of probability isn't there? If so, I must have broken it.
