\015 In the BIOS it offers the option to boot from usb. but when i plug my flash in, it doesnt work??? any ideas???? Also, i have no Hard drive. lol only using flash??? Still have any ideas???? holla\015

Answers :

Use the Puppy pmount program (in the File Managers menu) and mount the Windows CD drive.

As i said, I haven't worked much with Linux lately. I found this information at: http://www.puppylinux.org. You will probably be able to find more information there, if the pmount application is not intuitive.

Again, good luck, and let me know how it goes.
