==This is how I run my Puppy==
I meant to offer this also as perhaps a better way to do things amd maintain your sanity.
Download the iso for whichever Pup you choose . Burn a live CD
Reboot and catch it with an F2. Ensure the machine boots first from a USB stick then from a CD then from the hard drive.
Boot from the CD only
From the desktop icons install the system to a USB drive and make sure that loads properly .
Thats it
No mucking around altering boot records or config files or bootloaders .
Now to use it when you want to run Windows make sure the CD and USB drives are out and boot away . Up comes windows .
When you want to boot Puppy put the USB stick in and voila.
