This information may prove useful if you want to install Porteus on your hdd in the Puppy Linux manner (frugal):
I have downloaded the Porteus *.iso file and extracted it to /porteus/ on my hdd.
Note that it creates a double path for accessing some porteus data, which has to be included in the following grub configuration. (This is the main mistake of poeole wanting to perform frugal installation of Porteus!)
Here it goes:
title porteus 1.1
kernel (hd0,0)/porteus/boot/vmlinuz from_dev=/dev/sda1 from_dir=porteus/porteus ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw toroot autoexec=xconf;telinit~4 max_loop=256 changes=/mnt/sda1/porteus/porteus/notebook18.dat
This is the entry in my menu.lst - I've created the data file named notebook18.dat
Of course I do not recommend using toroot cheatcode, however it is similar to Puppy Linux. (I'll delete or change it later).
