How To Avoid Loading SaveFile

There are two ways to avoid a Puppy picking up a single pup save file on a frugal installation. This allows you to make a fresh pup save file when you shutdown/reboot. It is also useful to back up the savefile which can be done by copying as long as it isn't in use (mounted).

Make Puppy give you the choice of save-file (method 1)
1. Make a dummy save-file.
for example,
if original save-file is called lupusave-name.xfs
make a file blank dummy file, calling the new one something like - lupusave-dummy.xfs
ensure that the naming convention is retained, for Puppy Lucid 5.2x - lupusave-<name>.<2/3>fs
2. Reboot, Puppy it will give the opinion of which save-file to load, and also the opinion 0 - not to load any save-file.

Prevent Puppy loading any SaveFiles (method 2)
Depending on your installation, if you have the Puppy boot screen
it allows different settings to be used:-
puppy pfix=ram
If you are using a bootloader such as Grub, you can add another option, and configure it to use this parameter.
