This is Linux related, though not about assembly.

I just installed Linux Puppy on my hard drive, but there is no pick on the menu when I boot up.

I tried using Grub.

Thanks,

It's not about assembly and even not about programming, so I suggest you ask this on one of the Puppy Linux forums.

It is for the heap section anyway.
Puppy Linux is not aimed to be installed on HDD. It is still possible, as long as all Linuxes are the same, but you have to make some effort on it.
So, the question is "Why?". If you need Linux on your HDD, better use some, that will be targeted as such and will install itself flawlessly.

Puppy can optionally (already by default) be installed to the hard drive, I've done it! IIRC, it's a 200 MB ext3 partition (Lucid 5.28). And I multi-boot fine (but I only use old Grub 1 legacy not newer, actually BTTR's BOOTMGR is in the MBR too). But you may still have to manually copy from the *.sfs file. I suggest you do what I did and ask in IRC (or similar venue) for guidance.

I have used it before on pen drives and really like it's speed.

Why put a 1 Gb Mint or Ubuntu O.S. on my drive when I can use the under 200 Mb Puppy ?

Take care.

Right now I am dealing with a trojan and a virus and the mess they made.
