Additions:
~Frugal is a standard method for installing Puppy Linux. The Linux system files are stored in a single compressed file.
~In more technical terms it uses a layered file system. The base [[SFS]], other SFSs and PupSave file remain compressed in filesystem-in-a-file files. However they appear to the user in the [[terminal]] and [[FileManagers File Manager]] as the Linux [[RootFS]] which normally expanded over a whole [[partition]]. Any changes or additional files are added to the PupSave file. Apart from files in the ##/mnt/## directory which is used to specify mount locations.
