There is a Universal Installer in the Setup menu, which you follow using the "USB flash" option. The USB flash should be factory-fresh or reformatted in Windows to FAT (FAT16) - in case you've formatted it earlier to FAT32.

Hello there,

I'm new to Linux and Puppy, but managed to install Puppy 4.1 (puppy-4.1retro-k2.6.21.7-seamonkey) on an old 1 gig USB stick that is FAT32 formatted. It's running on my new Toshiba netbook NB100.

It has to be said, though, that the bootup takes four to five minutes, most of which time it seems to be stuck at booting the kernel. Eventually it gets through and all runs fine, except that my hard disk is invisible and so can't be mounted.

Regards,
AM.
