Frugal Installations

A frugal installation is performed by extracting the contents of the container ISO or ZIP file to virtually any type of FAT, NTFS or EXT 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 disc drive.

First acquire the container file (either an ISO or ZIP file) of the desired Puppy Linux, e.g. Fluppy, Puppy 5 or Puppy 5 with extra multi-lingual keyboard support.

If the target partition or drive contains any files copy them elsewhere if required, because they will be destroyed when formatting.

If, after performing the installation processes given below, the computer does not boot into Puppy Linux from the U.S.B. flash drive follow the instructions in Appendices 1 and 3 at LiveDVD.
