I wanted to add puppy its small and easy or so i thought. because of the few files to work with here is my .cfg entry

Code:
LABEL puppy
  MENU label Puppy Linux 4.2.1
  KERNEL /pup/vmlinuz
  APPEND initrd=/pup/initrd.gz pmedia=cd BOOT_IMAGE=PUP_421.SFS PUP_421.SFS_dir=/pup


these things i added.

Code:
BOOT_IMAGE=PUP_421.SFS PUP_421.SFS_dir=/pup


in an attempt to stop the (couldn not find puppy filesystem "PUP_421.SFS")

now the files included were

boot.cat
boot.msg
help.msg
initrd.gz
isolinux.bin
isolinux.cfg
logo.16
PUP_421.SFS
vmlinuz

now im trying to boot it in the /pup dir of my cd's root. however its not finding "PUP_421.SFS" and it drops to limited consol. iv tried everything under the sun really. putting all the files in / by themselves and having it try to boot off its own .cfg iv tried leaving everything in /pup except for PUP_421.SFS i put that in / and it still wouldnt find it. and the above code...well that also doesnt work. here is the isolinux.cfg from the orig pup iso

Code:
default puppy
display boot.msg
prompt 1
timeout 80

F1 boot.msg
F2 help.msg

label puppy
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.gz pmedia=cd


here is my exact error

pretty simplistic but its giving me trouble. Is their an angel among you[/img]

Post the contents of help.msg, if it doesn't work anymore.

I don't have any idea why you invented such parameters :? .

The file PUP_421.SFS must be in lower case (pup_421.sfs). Linux is CaSeSenSitiVe for filenames.

It is a Windows "bug". It shows the filenames on a CD in uppercase (when they are 8 characters + 3 characters for the extension long). Extract iso's with 7zip, so the files have always the correct case.
