I've been experimenting with my Puppy LiveUSB. It seems one of the drawbacks is that I could not create a pupsavefile back to the USB. I guess I could have chosen "Multisession" at beginning and kept all my settings that way back to usb, but did not realize I would not be able to do this. This creates an issue as I deleted firefox and installed a full fledge FF, so when I go back FF will be gone. I can fix that but it still creates an issue with puppy and rebooting? I did not want to save to HDD as I ran into some troubles in doing this recently, I will go into that later.
What I would like to do eventually is dual boot two pups on a USB, and I am aware there is software to do so, but like UNetbootin(which I used to create the USB in question) has it's limitations. But for now let's keep the topic to single boot on usb with space to save.
The most important thing to me now is to create a LiveUSB that I can save too, via. "folder" or "savefile". I don't understand the difference of these two filesystems accept that the Folder grows as one needs it to without attention.
I am also aware that one can install to usb manually and that is what I would like to do to accomplish this.
Using a 16GB USB:
My idea is to create a small partition for the OS in fat32 and another in ext. for a Save Partition. I am not even sure that "fat" is required for a manual install and not sure what the best ext. file partition would be. I have seen all the info. on ext. but it does not help me being a noob. I have read that fat. is needed for boot purposes or something.
I saw a video on manual install, so I can pull that off, but just want some advice from the long time pup runners on the best way to do this. I have looked all over youtube for this but there are so many videos on pupusb stuff.
I am going to PM Al000 also, thanks pcpunk
