All those guy who dislike Xandros and can’t stand up to install windows on their eeepc, this tutorial is a blessing. Infact, Pupeee is a nice linux-alternative to Xandros.
You can find a clear wiki here: http://wiki.eeeuser.com/pupeee.html

- Download Puppeee installation cd (*.iso): http://www.puppylinux.ca/members/Pupeee/ (about 100 Mb)
- Burn the iso image and reboot you computer (the one which has a cd device) with the Puppeee (it is a live distro).
- Once the boot is finished, click: Start -> Setup -> Puppy universal installer
- An installation-wizard will star, you can choose you installation method.
I decided to use a SD flash card, owing to confort. Infact, is not necessary to plug/unplug the memory device every time, as could happen using a usb pen driver.
I formatted the memory in Fat v16 (I also tryed ext2, but it doesn’t work) and put “boot” flag” (don’t worry about this, gparted is included in puppeee default installation; the wizard will explain this step).
The installation takes about 5 minutes.
Make sure the bios of you eeepc is proprely set: at boot, press F2 and put “removible device” at the very top of “boot device” list. Press F10 to save and quit.
That’s it! I hope you enjoy the Pupeee experience.
