===={{color c="blue" text="Making GRUB choose an initial pupsave file"}}====
When booting to a frugal install, certain GRUB versions allow, via the psave parameter, to choose directly which pupsave file you want to load, skipping thus the intermediate menu that appears during boot when several pupsave files are found.
Such parameter has been documented to work in Puppy 431 but not in Slacko.

Additions:
GRUB can be installed [[http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=16950 manually]]. GRUB has two parts - ""stage1"" and ""stage2"". ""Stage1"" is the small block of boot code that gets written onto the M.B.R. ""Stage2"" is the collection of support files that are stored in the directory ///boot/grub// on the Linux partition. That is also where the GRUB menu file //menu.lst// is located.
Inode sizes in EXT partitions:

**Suggestions**
I would suggest that if you wish to install Puppy in a ""Windows98"" or ME partition, after booting from a live CD, examine the hard drive and if you find a pupsomething file delete it and continue with the install to the Win partition using the Wizard.
You may have to also unmount the partition you are trying to install to.
In conclusion I hope this document will be of some use to those of you who are not experienced in the use of Linux and associated programs.
This document was compiled from many sources and by the use of practical work if you have any queries or suggestions please post them on the Puppy forum or the Wiki when it is in full use.
