Sub_title: UNetbootin can create a bootable Live USB drive, or make a "frugal install" on your hard drive
 

UNetbootin can create a bootable Live USB drive, or it can make a "frugal install" on your local hard disk.
http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

To use a Puppy iso file.
Follow the directions for using an iso file you have already downloaded.
http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/#other

You do not really install Unetbootin into Puppy.

Download the Linux version of Unetbootin.

It is an exec file, but it needs to be given the exec permission.

In the file manager.
Right click on the Unetbootin file and select properties.
Give it exec permissions.

Now left click on the Unetbootin file to run it.

May need to install a version of mtools you can get from the Puppy Package Manager.

I just did not really see a need to make a pet, seeing how it is already an exec file and only a single file.
It can be moved to the desktop if you want to run it from there.

Here is a pet that watchdog made.

Why would you want to use this instead of the built in Puppy Universal Installer?

Just an optional program.

Linux is about options.

Someone asked how to run Unetbootin in Puppy.

Using the Puppy Universal Installer is the one of choice if running Puppy.
It has more options.

unetbootin-608-w5.pet:

https://copy.com/c7BgIkl8erzWPwCU

It contains mtools and p7zip all in one. It seems to work in a live of slacko 5.7, precise 5.7.1, tahr 6.02 (and obviously wary). It has not a menu entry: open a console and type:

Code:
unetbootin installtype=USB targetdrive=/dev/sdxy


where sdxy is the usb stick where you want to install to an iso.
