A Puppy frugal installation is performed by extracting the contents of the container ISO or ZIP file to one, i.e. the same, directory on any FAT32, NTFS or EXT4 formatted partition.

If the target partition or drive contains any personally important files copy them elsewhere if required, because they will be destroyed when formatting.

If, after performing the installation processes described below, the computer does not boot follow the instructions in Appendices 1 and 3 at LiveDVD.

The next three steps assume that one is running Puppy Linux. The target device is the device which contains the partition that one aims to install to. It may be either an external flash memory device (e.g. U.S.B. flash memory drive, SD flash memory card) or an internal hard disk drive. If running Microsoft Windows go to Appendix 1 below.

Step 1 - Preparing the target device

Step 2 - Installing Puppy to the target device

Step 3 - Installing a boot-loader to the target device

Using SYSLINUX for EXT4 partitions
Using SYSLINUX for FAT32 partitions
