A frugal Puppy installation is performed by //extracting the contents of the container file// (either ISO or ZIP) to normally __one__, i.e. the same, directory. Let that desired partition be known as the target partition since one is aiming to install to it. That partition may be located on:
- either an external device, e.g. [[http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02001 a flash memory drive]]
Therefore, the target device is the device which contains the partition that one aims to install to, such as an external flash memory drive or an internal hard disk drive. The minimum, nominal storage capacity for a flash memory drive is 256MB.
<<**WARNING**: If the target partition contains any important files **{{color text="make a minimum of two copies of important files, where each copy is located on a separate partition on a separate device" c="red"}}**, because they will be destroyed whenever the target partition is formatted.<<
<<**IMPORTANT**: **{{color text="determine the correct device name (sdX) of the target device" c="red"}}** to work on, via the command-line interface: %%lsblk%%<<

- **install the boot configuration file //syslinux.cfg//**
([[http://www.smokey01.com/coolpup/syslinux.cfg sample]] file for flash
memory drives only) on the target device by copying it to
///boot/syslinux// (this file will need editing if more than one Puppy
version has been installed; the
//[[http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=01813 pkeys]]// parameter will
need to be configured for one's geographical location)

~~- for FAT file-systems: %%/bin/mkdir -p /mnt/sdXY/boot &&
/usr/bin/syslinux -i -s /dev/sdXY/boot%%
- copy from the ISO (or ZIP) directory to the target device either all
the files, or, just these essential ones: //vmlinuz//, //initrd.gz//,
and all those with the extension //.sfs// (if more than one Puppy
version is to be installed ensure that they are each contained within
their own directory)
~- when shutting down the system there may be the option to create a
personal storage (''pupsave'') file which must be chosen if personal
settings and configuration are to be saved.

the target drive bootable: (where X is the drive letter for the target
drive or partition)%%syslinux.exe -m -a X:%%
- open the Puppy ISO (or ZIP) file to view its contents, using e.g.
7-zip, (it is important that the original file names be kept)

all those with the extensions //.sfs//
- download this sample boot-loader configuration file
[[http://www.smokey01.com/coolpup/syslinux.cfg syslinux.cfg]] (for flash

==Appendix 2 - Installation to any Microsoft Windows partition and using
""GRUBforDOS"" as boot-loader==
~-__Installing the boot-loader to the internal hard disk drive (where
Microsoft Windows resides)__
When making an installation to an internal H.D.D. with an existing
operating system, one has the option to either allow that operating
system to remain or be removed. Only remove the existing operating
system if the computer is more than 3 years old since most computer
manufacturers cease to provide
[[http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=483349#483349 new
B.I.O.S. versions]] after that time. If the intention is to remove the
existing operating system, regardless of computer age, then ensure to
check for and install any B.I.O.S. updates first.
If the Puppy files are to be appended, by making a //frugal installation
only// of Puppy, then this would involve one of the following:
One can place a frugal installation within a pre-existing Windows
installation. The save file, although itself is comprised of a Linux
file-system, may reside on a F.A.T. or N.T.F.S. partition; which is why a
frugal installation is also called a "co-exist"
installation. A full hard disk drive installation on a F.A.T. partition
is not possible because F.A.T. partitions do not support Linux symbolic
links.
There is an option to install from within Microsoft Windows using the
relevant file from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?5ah0d0rzcz5cc

Revision [20037]

Edited on 2012-01-02 09:12:23 by coolpup [[[FrugalOrFullInstallation Full or Frugal installa]
Additions:
When making an installation to an internal H.D.D. with an existing operating system, one has the option to either allow that operating system to remain or be removed. Only remove the existing operating system if the computer is more than 3 years old since most computer manufacturers cease to provide [[http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=483349#483349 new B.I.O.S. versions]] after that time. If the intention is to remove the existing operating system, regardless of computer age, then ensure to check for and install any B.I.O.S. updates first.
If the Puppy files are to be appended, by making a //frugal installation only// of Puppy, then this would involve one of the following:
- either making a //new partition// for Puppy (not recommended)
- or, using an //existing partition// for Puppy (recommended)
One can place a frugal installation within a pre-existing Windows installation. The save file, although itself is comprised of a Linux file-system, may reside on a F.A.T. or N.T.F.S. partition; which is why a frugal installation is also called a "co-exist" installation. A full hard disk drive installation on a F.A.T. partition is not possible because F.A.T. partitions do not support Linux symbolic links.
There is an option to install from within Microsoft Windows using the relevant file from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?5ah0d0rzcz5cc

I notice that you still haven't commented on this issue. A machine missing an internal hard drive can no longer be booted from a flash drive. The new search procedure fails to find the sfs file on the flash drive.

Let that desired partition be known as the target partition since one is aiming to install to it. That partition may be located on either an external flash memory device {e.g. U.S.B. flash memory drive (often erroneously referred to as //memory stick//), S.D. flash memory card, etc.} or an internal hard disk drive.

Additions:
The target device is the device which contains the partition that one aims to install to, such as an external flash memory drive or an internal hard disk drive. Such a device must have a partition with a minimum size of 256MB.
Usually one has to have already an existing Puppy installation and so the following three steps assume that one is running Puppy Linux. If one is running Microsoft Windows go to //Appendix 1// below.

Additions:
A Puppy frugal installation is performed by //extracting the contents of the container ISO or ZIP file// to __one__, i.e. the same, directory on any desired FAT32, NTFS or EXT4 formatted partition. Let that desired partition be known as the target partition since one is aiming to install to it. That partition may be on either an external flash memory device {e.g. U.S.B. flash memory drive (often erroneously referred to as //memory stick//), SD flash memory card, etc.} or an internal hard disk drive.
The target device is the device which contains the partition that one aims to install to. The target device is either an external flash memory device or an internal hard disk drive. If installation is to an internal hard disk drive, one usually has to have already an existing Puppy installation on a separate drive such as a ""LiveUSB"" or LiveDVD.
If installation is to an external flash memory device, connected via U.S.B., follow the next three steps. It is assumed that one is running Puppy Linux. If one is running Microsoft Windows go to //Appendix 1// below.
If, after performing the three steps below, the computer does not boot from the flash memory device follow the instructions in //Appendices 1// and //3// at LiveDVD.

Additions:
Apart from running Puppy Linux from a full hard disk drive (H.D.D.) installation or from a LiveDVD, it is also possible to run it as a frugal installation, performed by //extracting the contents of the container ISO or ZIP file// to virtually any type of FAT32, NTFS, or EXT2/3/4 formatted partition.
When a frugal installation is desired it is convenient to have a LiveDVD because it can be used to install the required boot loader (either GRUB, SYSLINUX, or EXTLINUX depending on the formatting of the installation partition). Instructions are also provided below for situations when not using an optical drive.

===={{color text="Appendix" c="black"}}====
For a frugal installation the file system is placed inside a single file, pup_xxx.sfs, which itself contains a compressed read-only ext2 file system into which the Linux "/" dir is placed, with its sub-directories inside it. There is also a pup_save.2fs file which contains an uncompressed ext2 file system. This one, called the "save file", stores any changes or additions you make to the normal file system. Upon booting, pup_save.2fs is super-imposed over pup_xxx.sfs so that one sees a complete file system. There are only two other small files: initrd.gz and vmlinuz (the kernel). Prior to Puppy Linux 4.00, zdrv_xxx.sfs was also used. Thus you can conveniently back up everything to, for example, a USB flash drive by simply copying /mnt/home/pup_save.2fs (plus vmlinuz, initrd.gz, pup_xxx.sfs) and your GRUB boot loader marker and config files to the drive. Technically though, you only need to back up the pup_save.2fs file, because the rest are all the original files from the .ISO file.
A frugal installation runs faster in high-RAM computers; install is easy to upgrade; and it can be placed on a Windows FAT32 or NTFS hard drive/partition without re-partitioning it.
However, if you have fast newer disks and plenty of R.A.M., frugal loses its speed advantage. On a P3-1GHz machine with 1GB of RAM and UDMA5 hard disks, there is no material performance difference between a frugal install and a full H.D.D install, provided the full install is on a reiserfs partition.
On a P3-800 laptop with only a UDMA2 hard disk, there is a great deal of difference. If you have enough RAM to hold Puppy, e.g. 256MB, then the frugal install is the only way to go.
To be able to dual-boot Puppy alongside Windows without re-partitioning then the frugal install is the way to go.
For a full installation the conventional Linux file system [/, /boot, /bin, /etc, /lib, /mnt, /root, /sys, /usr, /var, etc.] is placed straight onto the partition. A full installation runs faster on low-RAM computers.
On a full hard disk install, vmlinuz is (usually) in /boot, Firefox is in /usr/bin and so forth. On a frugal install vmlinuz is outside of pup_save.2fs somewhere on the "real" file system. Firefox in frugal is also in /usr/bin, but /usr/bin itself is not directly on the disk but rather is in /initrd/pup_rw which in reality is pup_save.2fs on the disk's "real" file-system, "union'ed" into the overall Linux / directory tree in pup_xxx.sfs using special Puppy magic.
Another thing frugal installs do is copy the pup_xxx.sfs file into ram if there is enough memory, causing applications to start slightly faster. If the computer does not have sufficient RAM, it will instead mount the pup_xxx.sfs file from the HDD.
In the case that a frugal install's pup_save.2fs file is on a flash-based drive, Puppy will actually store any changes and new files you make in RAM, and only copy them to the pup_save.2fs file on the drive periodically (or when you click the "save" icon or shut down). This is to cut down on writes to the drive to extend it's life. This behavior does not happen on non-flash media (if it does you probably forgot to set the pmedia=satahd parameter when using a SATA drive).
You can place a frugal install on a pre-existing <a href="http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Win98">Win98</a> install; the pup_save.2fs (though it itself contains an ext2 filesystem) can reside on a vfat (fat32) partition, and if you are adventurous I believe even on an NTFS partition. Which is why a frugal install is also called a "coexist" install.
Not so with a full hard disk drive install: you cannot place a full install on a pre-existing vfat or NTFS partition, because these Microsoft file systems do not support Linux symlinks.

Additions:
Apart from running Puppy Linux from a full hard disk drive (H.D.D.) installation or from a LiveDVD, it is also possible to run it as a frugal installation, performed by //extracting the contents of the ISO image// to a directory on virtually any type of FAT32, NTFS, or EXT2/3/4 formatted partition.
When a frugal installation is desired, then it is convenient to have a LiveDVD because it can be used to install the required boot loader (either [[/wiki/applications/pre-installed/grub GRUB]], SYSLINUX, or EXTLINUX depending on the format of the partition).
===Installation, from within Microsoft Windows, to any FAT32 partition using SYSLINUX===
For example, installing to a partition on an U.S.B. flash drive.
- When using FAT32 partitions, the bootloader //syslinux//, instead of GRUB, is required: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/boot/syslinux/
- Acquire the desired Puppy Linux iso file, e.g. http://puppylinux.org/main/index.php?file=Download%20Latest%20Release.htm
- Extract the contents of the Puppy iso file to the partition, using e.g. 7-zip, (it is important that the original file names be kept; sometimes the archivers mess up with the names e.g. PUP_434.SFS instead of pup-434.sfs)
- Rename the file "isolinux.cfg" to "syslinux.cfg"; delete the file "isolinux.bin".
- Edit "syslinux.cfg" in a text editor: change "pmedia=cd" to "pmedia=usbflash"
- Extract //syslinux// to a folder, e.g. //C:/syslinux//. Then go to //C:/syslinux/win32/// and run this command to make the drive bootable (where X: is the drive letter for the drive/partition):%%syslinux.exe -m -a X:%%

Apart from running Puppy Linux from a full hard disk drive (H.D.D.) installation or from a [[CreateLiveCDorDVD liveCD/DVD]], it is also possible to run it as a frugal installation, performed by //extracting the contents of the ISO image// to a directory on virtually any type of FAT32, NTFS, or EXT3 formatted partition.
When a frugal installation is desired, then it is convenient to have a [[CreateLiveCDorDVD live disc]] because it can be used to install the required boot loader (either [[/wiki/applications/pre-installed/grub GRUB]], SYSLINUX, or EXTLINUX depending on the format of the partition).
===Installation, from within Microsoft Windows, to a FAT32 partition using SYSLINUX===
For example, installing to U.S.B. flash drive
1. When using FAT32 partitions, the bootloader syslinux is required so download it
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/boot/syslinux/
2. Download latest Puppy Linux .iso
http://puppylinux.org/main/index.php?file=Download%20Latest%20Release.htm
3. You need a file archiver like 7-Zip
http://www.7-zip.org/download.html
4. Select a U.S.B. flash drive to install Puppy to and back-up its contents if necessary
5. Extract the contents of the Puppy .iso file to the U.S.B. flash drive using e.g. 7-zip
(it's important that the original file names will be kept, sometimes the archivers mess up with the names e.g. PUP_434.SFS instead of pup-434.sfs)
6. Extract syslinux to a folder, e.g. C:/syslinux. Then go to C:/syslinux/win32/
Then run the command
%%
syslinux.exe -m -a X:
%%
(where X: is the drive letter for the connected U.S.B. flash drive).
The U.S.B. flash drive is now bootable.
7. On the U.S.B. flash drive rename the file "isolinux.cfg" to "syslinux.cfg".
Delete the un-needed file "isolinux.bin".
8. Edit "syslinux.cfg" in a text editor; at the line "append initrd=initrd.gz pmedia=cd"
change "pmedia=cd" to "pmedia=usbflash".
If however you have enough RAM for the particular Puppy version, a frugal install is better, because almost everything (i.e. everything in pup_xxx.sfs, but NOT pup_save.2fs) is loaded into RAM, therefore called from RAM, and so loads faster.
A full install is your preferred choice on a computer with not enough RAM to hold Puppy, say Puppy 2.15CE and only 192MB RAM, because programs and data can be mounted from disk with no need to occupy RAM.
