I am trying to install an Ubuntu-compatible Puppy Linux VM, and am concerned that this looks like the most difficult VMware Linux installation I've seen yet. I've seen http://johann.loefflmann.net/en/articles/how-to-install-puppy-linux-3.01-on-vmware.txt (which points to an FTP site that is live but does not, after a couple of clicks, show to download the preferred ISO -- is the lupu-528.005.iso I downloaded from elsewhere appropriate?), and a couple of in-depth, hacker-strength HOWTO's, which may or may not point to something current in their URL's, but I haven't been able to follow any of them to the point of installing on a working system.
(I can boot off the live ISO image just fine; I haven't yet managed to get it to talk to the VMware virtual hard drive partition.)
Is getting Puppy to install on a VMware VM really at a Linux guru's HOWTO in pay grade? Is there a simple way I can install Puppy to a hard drive, whether or not it's at the point-and-almost-drool simplicity of almost every other Linux distribution I've tried to install?
