If you are having a problem booting Puppy from CD!!!
The other day I upgraded my CD Burner to a DVD Burner.
I usually boot Puppy from a CD-R Pocket sized CD (210 Megabytes in size).
For whatever reason, the smaller CD would not boot, even though the machine is set to look to the CD for booting before defaulting to the Hard Disk.
Once I put Puppy on the normal sized CD-R, it boots every time just like it is supposed to.
This seems like a simple solution, and it really is. So, for some of our newer members, if you are having trouble booting from a CD, it might be easily remedied by having the program on the bigger disc.
