How to Add a SFS file to a Full Installation

Installing a SFS file in a Full installation is slightly more complicated than on a Frugal installation. Here are a few methods that work.

Terminal method
1. Click on the .sfs file in a filer window to mount it.
2. Open a terminal in the mounted directory and enter the following
 # cp -a --remove-destination ./* /mnt/hda2/
 # sync

3. Click on the .sfs file to unmount it
Note 1, the --remove-destination option is essential. If you only use '-f' to force overwrite, it will follow (dereference) a symlink, that can cause unexpected overwrites.
Note 2, replace /mnt/hda2/ with the name of the partition where Puppy is installed.

GUI Methods
The utility SFS_Load can load SFS file on a Full Installation. Also, in QuickPet and SlickPet there is the Sfs Get tab to load SFSs which is compatible with Full installation.
