Hi Jonathan,

    I've downloaded the latest Puppy Linux .iso.  I've been doing some 
searches on their site to see how I can transfer that to a USB drive rather 
than burn it to a CD so that I can do a USB drive installation.  But I'm 
getting irrelevant hits, like full installation to USB (no HD), and the like.  
Any pointers on how to make a CD installation .iso into a USB installation?
