However, Alex has now complained that the UDF filesystem is also screened out as "too exotic and unlikely to be used", but it is needed.
So, I have now allowed udf.ko and that will be in 4.1alpha6.

ignoring a hdd
Please can you enable the facility to ignore a hdd at boot by typing "puppy hda=none" for example.

You can type any boot parameters that you want, I don't have to "enable" anything.
Note though, there are no /dev/hd* drives anymore, they are all /dev/sd*.

At last,UDF support! :D
I've been waiting for *ages* to get proper out-of-the-box UDF support in Puppy.
2.17 was the last release where the UDF tools package worked.
Now I can finally use my DVD-RAM and UDF-formatted DVD+RW discs and put WinXP and Ubuntu where they really belong - in the dustbin :)
Can't wait for the next alpha.
