What We Need...???
  • Puppy Linux
Puppy Linux is an operating system for computers. Other well-known operating systems are Microsoft Windows, Apple OSX, and MS-DOS. Puppy Linux is based on GNU/Linux. It is completely free and open source software. why puppy?
  1. Small size, usually less than 100MB! This lends itself to some very useful and unique features
  2. 'Live' booting from CDs, DVDs, USB flash drives, and other portable media.
  3. Runs from RAM, making it unusually fast for older or modern PCs and netbooks with solid state CF drives
  4. Very low minimum system requirements
  5. Boot time, well under a minute, on most systems 30-40 secs
  6. Usability and Compatibility
  7. Includes a wide range of applications: word processors, spreadsheets, internet browsers, games and image editors. Extra software in the form of dotpets. There is a Puppy Package Manager included
  8. Puppy is easy to use and little technical knowledge is assumed. Most hardware is automatically detected including analog modems for those using dial-up.
  • UNetbootin
UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for a variety of Linux distributions from Windows or Linux, without requiring you to burn a CD. You can either let it download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file if you've already downloaded one or your preferred distribution isn't on the list.
Requirements :
  1. Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista, or Linux. If you are having trouble with the Linux version, try the Windows version, it usually works better.
  2. A broadband internet connection to download the distribution's .iso file (unless you're using pre-downloaded files)
The current version has built-in support for automatically downloading and loading the following distributions, though installing other distributions is also supported:
"Ubuntu (and official derivatives),Debian,Mint,openSUSE,Arch Linux,Small Linux,SliTaz,Puppy Linux,gNewSense,FreeBSD,NetBSD,Fedora,PCLinuxOS,SabayonLinux,Gentoo,MEPIS,Zenwalk,
Slax,Dreamlinux,Elive,CentOS,Mandriva,FaunOS,Frugalware,Linux,xPUD"

Let's build this stuff...!!!
  • Download Puppy Linux ---> Here
  • Download Unetbootin ---> Here
  • run UNetbootin, then supply it with the appropriate ISO (CD image) file, floppy/hard disk image, or kernel and initrd files when prompted (see screenshot). Check your distribution's download page to find the appropriate file; if in doubt use the ISO file.
  • If you're loading an ISO file or floppy/hard disk image, that's all that's required (just press "OK" to start installing); otherwise if you're manually specifying kernel and initrd files and you'd like to specify special booting options, check the distribution's boot configuration files (usually after the "kernel" line in either isolinux.cfg, syslinux.cfg, menu.lst, or grub.conf) and supply them on the "Option" line.

I like the unetbootin idea. I like puppy also. In addition it has it's own feature to install to a USB stick built in, but unetbootin may be easier. You know what else I like WUBI(windows ubuntu installer). The people who made unetbootin should make a WUBI like program for all linux distros so I can install pupppy, or any other linux distro, as a file on inside a windows partition. It can be call LIWI (linux windows intaller).
