Additions:
When using ""Burniso2cd"" with an optical disc it is always burnt "open", i.e. the option whether to burn as closed or open is not offered. This disc can become either a multi-session Puppy live DVD or a non-multi-session one. This option is offered when one first boots the newly written disc and subsequently proceeds to shutdown for the first time: one will be asked where one will want one's personal data to be saved, either on the DVD or on some other partition, wherever that may be. The irreversible decision one makes here is what determines whether the disc is permanently set as multi-session or not. So if one wants a multi-session disc choose that personal data and session settings be saved to the optical disc only, i.e. select **//Save to CD//**, and not //Save to file// (the default option). Subsequently, each time one proceeds to shutdown at the end of a session, the option to save or discard that session is provided.

Multisession on laptop
Laptop optical drives cannot handle multisession CD/DVD. This problem has always been there, you have to use have to use a "proper" optical drive on a PC. Probably this should be explained somewhere, before people try, and fail.
I don't know if this limitation applies to all laptop optical drives. If anyone knows of an exception,let us know.
There was a post here recently by Ted Dog, that the Gujin bootloader can get around the limitation:
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02227
...it would be interesting to explore a live-CD with Gujin --- anyone interested?

Creating a disc that is multi-session is desirable when one wishes data to be //saved to the same live DVD// that one has booted from. This means that one can carry an operating system and personal files //all on one optical disc//.

Puppy Linux has been a pioneer of the multi-session live DVD. To create a multi-session disc use the ""Burniso2cd"" program within Puppy Linux. This program will only write the ISO image to a __blank disc__, i.e. the disc is either new, or, as in the case of a re-writable disc, it has been erased first using the Pburn program.
To start Pburn, within Puppy Linux go to: //Menu > Multimedia > Pburn//
To start ""Burniso2cd"", within Puppy Linux go to: //Menu > Multimedia > ""Burniso2cd""//
To erase a disc using Pburn:
start Pburn; go to //Burn > Blank CD/DVD//; click //Blank disc// tab; select type of erasure //Fast blank// and select type of disc media; click //Burner device// tab and select your burner device (drive) that contains the disc to be erased, and un-check //Eject disc after burn//; click //Burn// button to commence erasing.
To write an ISO image to disc using ""Burniso2cd"":
start ""Burniso2cd""; select the disc type, CD or DVD, that has been placed in the drive; then select the optical disc drive that contains the disc; and then navigate to the location of the relevant ISO file so as to select it. The ""Burniso2cd"" program will write the ISO image file to the optical disc. Leave the disc in the drive and re-start the computer.
Using ""Burniso2cd"" with a DVD it is always burnt "open", i.e. the option whether to burn as closed or open is not offered. This DVD can become either a multi-session Puppy live DVD or a non-multi-session one. This option is offered when one first boots the newly burned disc and subsequently proceed to shutdown for the first time: one will be asked where one will want one's personal data to be saved, either on the DVD or on some other partition, wherever that may be. The irreversible decision one makes here is what determines whether the disc is permanently set as multi-session or not. So if one wants a multi-session disc choose that personal data and session settings be saved to the optical disc only, i.e. select //Save to CD//, and not //Save to file// (the default option). Subsequently, each time one proceeds to shutdown at the end of a session, the option to save or discard that session is provided.
For CD-R/RW media the situation is different. The option //is// offered whether to burn as closed or open; so if one wants a multi-session CD-R/RW then one must choose to burn an 'open' disc. However, using a CD is less reliable at saving sessions at shutdown than using a DVD+R, another reason not to use CDs for creating a live disc.

Puppy Linux has been a pioneer of the multi-session ""LiveCD/DVD"". To create a multi-session disc use Burniso2cd within Puppy Linux. An alternative would be to use Pburn. They will only perform the writing function with a blank disc, i.e. the disc is either new, or, as in the case of a re-writable disc, it has been erased first. Only Pburn has erasing capability; either Burniso2cd or Pburn can be used to burn ISO images.
To start Pburn, within Puppy Linux go to: Menu -> Multimedia -> Pburn
To start Burniso2cd, within Puppy Linux go to: Menu -> Multimedia -> Burniso2cd
To erase a disc: start Pburn; go to Burn -> Blank CD/DVD; click Blank disc tab; select type of erasure Fast blank and select type of disc media; click Burner device tab and select your burner device (drive) that contains the disc to be erased, and uncheck Eject disc after burn; click Burn button to commence erasing.
To burn using Burniso2cd: start Burniso2cd; select the disc type, CD or DVD, that has been placed in the drive; then select the optical disc drive that contains the disc; and then navigate to the location of the relevant ISO file so as to select it. The Burniso2cd program will burn (write) the ISO image file to the disc. Leave the disc in the drive and re-start the computer.
Using Burniso2cd a DVD is always burnt open, i.e. the option whether to burn as closed or open is not offered. This DVD can become either a multi-session Puppy ""LiveCD/DVD"" or a non-multi-session one. This option is offered when one first boots the newly burned disc and subsequently proceed to shutdown for the first time: one will be asked where one will want one's persistent data to be saved, either on the CD/DVD or on some other partition, wherever that may be. The irreversible decision one makes here is what determines whether the disc is permanently set as multi-session or not. So if one wants a multi-session disc choose that personal data and session settings be saved to the optical disc only, i.e. select Save to CD, and not Save to file (the default option). Subsequently, whenever one proceeds to shutdown at the end of a session, the option to save or discard that session is provided.
