I'm very new to UBCD and have been trying to add Puppy Linux to UBCD Basic, but am failing.

I'd use this combination at work, if I manage to get it to work properly.

I looked at:
viewtopic.php?p=608#608
viewtopic.php?t=179
but since my knowledge of UBCD is limited I didn't succeed.

Puppy doesn't have any folders so I copied everything, except isolinux.cfg to the \isolinux folder, overwriting when prompted.
I also used BBIE to get the boot.bin which I placed at the root.

My bootcat.ini looks like this right now:
Code:
C:\            ; Boot from drive C:                ; Skip CD.
\ubcd.bin         ; Ultimate Boot CD (DOS Utilities)         ; Start UBCD 3.3 Basic.
A:\            ; Boot drive A:                  ; Boot Floppy drive.
:reboot            ; Reboot PC                  ; Reboot.
\isolinux.bin      ; Puppy Linux               ; isolinux


The Puppy isolinux.cfg looks like this:
Code:
default 1
DISPLAY BOOT.MSG
SAY MENU: 2 No acpi  3 Choose HD  (ENTER only or 10sec timeout for normal boot)
prompt 1
label 1
kernel vmlinuz
append root=/dev/ram0 initrd=image.gz  PFILE=pup001-none-262144
label 2
kernel vmlinuz
append root=/dev/ram0 initrd=image.gz acpi=off  PFILE=pup001-none-262144
label 3
kernel vmlinuz
append root=/dev/ram0 initrd=image.gz acpi=off  PFILE=ask
label 5
kernel vmlinuz
append root=/dev/ram0 initrd=image.gz  PFILE=cd
timeout 100


What am I doing wrong, not doing at all? Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated. I'd much prefer to use Puppy instead of INSERT.

I managed to get it to work, at least it appears so.

I put the isolinux.bin and usr_cram.fs at the root and overwrote boot.cat, boot.msg, image.gz and vmlinuz in the /isolinux folder.
In /boot/menus/main.scn I replaced the entry for INSERT with:
Code:
if ($lastKey == key[f7]); then isolinux vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 initrd=image.gz  PFILE=pup001-none-262144

I did that for Puppy 1.0.6 and 1.0.7 beta. I said it only appears to work, because I haven't fully tested the other Linux Boot Disks on UBCD. I never used them before so am not sure how they should perform.

Since I'm using BCDW I wanted to add it to my bootcat.ini as well but have failed. Any pointers?
I'm not considering make some settings changes to my Puppy and adding something else, maybe another Linux distro but don't know if that is possible.
