A method that I do use is to burn an ISO file of puppy to CD or DVD
then boot up with it and then run the program Grub4dos
from the start menu of puppy. That guarantees success!!
A menu.lst file will be created and grub4dos is installed.
Hopefully you used it. Here are Shinobar's instructions. It's available
in all recent puppies.

This guy used the windows installer, which provides grub4dos in a form that interacts with the Windows bootloader, so the answer should reflect that.
The answer is yes, you can move Puppy to D:
Before telling you what to do we need a bit of info.
Using Windows, can you find the file menu.lst? It is probably in c:\. Open it in a text editor and copy the contents to a new post on this page. This will tell us how your Puppy is set at the moment.
One other rather technical question. Is D: a separate drive or a separate partition? If a separate partition do you know if it is a primary partition or included in the extended partition? I assume D: is formatted as NTFS.
With that info we should be able to tell you precisely what to do.
