Below is a simple script which will allow you to combine a number of your favourite SFS into one larger SFS file.

All you do is drop all of your SFS files you wish to combine on top of the script. Place it on the desktop if you wish.

All SFS will be unsquashed to /mnt/home/work then all squashed up again in the same directory. When finished it will display a rox window with a file called new.sfs. You need to rename and move your new file because it will be deleted when you click on the OK dialog.

Most puppies, if not all, have the following required dependencies:
unsquashfs
squashfs
Xdialog
bash

Code:
#!/bin/sh
#Written by smokey01
# This is a simple script to unsquash a bunch of sfs files.
# Place this script on your desktop then drop all of your sfs files onto it
# to make one big sfs file.
mkdir -p /mnt/home/work
for i in "$@"; do
 case "${i}" in
   *.sfs|*.SFS)
urxvt -e /usr/sbin/unsquashfs -f -d /mnt/home/work/root-sfs "${i}"
   ;;
 esac
 done
 if [ "${1}" = "" ]; then
Xdialog --title squasher --infobox "You need to drop SFS files on the icon, \nnot click on it.\n\n
You require a lot of disk space this is why the\n working directory is at /mnt/home/work" 0 0 10000
 else
urxvt -e /usr/sbin/mksquashfs /mnt/home/work/root-sfs /mnt/home/work/new.sfs
rox /mnt/home/work
Xdialog --title "***** WARNING *****" --msgbox "Rename and move the new.sfs file.\n When you click on OK it will be deleted" 0 0
rm -rf /mnt/home/work
fi

Tom what window manager are you using? Openbox or JWM?

You also need to have a /mnt/home drive so operating live probably won't work. I hard coded /mnt/home because you do need quite a lot of disk space when manipulating sfs files. Using the savefile is not recommended.

Code:
unsquashfs              unsquashfs-4.2-lzma     unsquashfs-4.2-xz
unsquashfs3             unsquashfs-4.2-lzma_xz
