I tried GRUB a few more times. Then I tried Grub4DOS and got it to work on the first try. In my opinion, Grub4DOS is the better choice for newbies. Smile

I'm at work and don't have access to connect that machine to the internet. But when i get home, I can start downloading packages and customizing this to my taste.

To summarize, for anyone wanting to do full install to clean hard drive like I did;

1. download PuppyLinux iso
2. use Rufus or similar installer to make bootable USB from the iso file
3. boot up the machine using your new bootable USB stick
4. use Gparted to partition and format your hard drive(S) (set a boot flag on the partition you will want to boot from, in case your bios requires it)
5. use universal Puppy installer to do full install to one of your new hard drive partitions
6. use Grub4DOS to set the machine to boot from your new Puppy Linux on your new hard drive and create boot menu with appropriate choices.
7. have fun with your new puppy - remember to customize all the basic settings like timezone, language, etc. and set up your network connection.

If I recalled all that correctly, then this is a concise list of what steps to take to get your machine running. I wish I had found a list like this a few days ago.

Thanks to everyone here for there generous help and encouragement. I feel like I have made some new friends already.
