Hi drango,

No, I haven't played around with ventoy; and probably won't. As you know, Puppies are designed to run as Frugal Installs. Once you have a running Puppy on a USB-Stick, adding another is fairly easy even done manually. But yapi, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=914260#914260 can be installed to automate the process if the target computer doesn't boot via UEFI. There are already a couple of Windows Programs --including 'our' own LICK by norby009-- to 'burn' the first Puppy ISO to a USB-Key. There's Unetbootin for doing so from Linux: but again manual input by user is required to change Unetbootin's designation of cd to USB.

The major problem is getting a UEFI system to boot your creation. Currently, the publishers of Ventoy advise that "by default, you need to disabled secure boot in BIOS before boot Ventoy in UEFI mode." https://www.ventoy.net/en/doc_secure.html. That puts it behind other Windows programs. And far behind our own --via gyro with bigpup & others assistance/testing-- Frugalpup, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1005485#1005485

The stumbling block remains for newbies running a different Linux. Under that circumstance, there still is no application which will create a bootable USB-Puppy without user intervention.

Or I could be wrong. Something for you 'all'* to explore while you have time on your hands.

I vote in favor of 'guys' as it was introduced before a heightened awareness of political correctness became the watchword. Maybe 40 years ago, 'She's just one of the guys' evidenced a condition of inclusion.
