So I am having just a bit of trouble actually "Installing" Puppy.

I got it to work from the live version which runs off of the ram, but I wanted to download it to the hard drive so I wouldnt have to have a boot disk every time I started up.

The actual instalation was easy up until the point where it asked for four files.
Vralinuz
initrd.sz
lupu-501sfs
ZL501332SFS

It says that if I booted from a live disc, those files should be on the disc but they are not.

This is where I got the files, ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/

Am I doing something wrong? At the moment I am going to download a couple of the 5.01 files onto a disc and see if those are the files Puppy needs.

I read I needed those files when I went to do the full install, from inside puppy. It (puppy os) tells me that I need those four files and they should be on the disc if I installed live from the disc, but its not on the disc.

These are all files on the CD-Rom. You may want to double check your spelling on a few of those file names though.
