A frugal installation is performed by extracting the contents of the container ISO or ZIP file to any FAT32, NTFS or EXT4 formatted partition.

Some available container files (either an ISO or ZIP file): Fluppy, Puppy 5 or Wary.

If the target partition or drive contains any 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 into Puppy Linux from the flash memory device follow the instructions in Appendices 1 and 3 at LiveDVD.
