I have a question about updating Puppy which Iím sure will show my ignorance of how the system boots.

I currently have 1.0.6 HD installed on an old P133 machine and it works really well. The disk is partitioned so that the main puppy files are on their own small partition and other partitions provide the working area. I plan to upgrade to 1.0.8 and was wondering if I could open the iso file with isobuster and then copy the vmlinuz, image.gz , usr_cram.fs to the appropriate locations (after first backing up the old files). Would GRUB then recognise these new files and boot the new version as though nothing has happened and keep all my settings?

yes

you don't need isobuster, you can do it from Puppy ... type something like this in an rxvt window:

mount -o loop /tmp/puppy.iso /mnt/data

and you should see the files in /mnt/data ... use the correct name and path to the Puppy iso file, of course

you can copy the files while Puppy is running ... when you are finished, you should unmount the iso file by typing:

umount /mnt/data

that's umount, not unmount
