I don't think that my startup depends on porteus.cfg
Sorry yes you are correct. I should have said add it to your grub config file.

You can also boot Porteus directly from iso file without unpacking, for example I have this:

set root='(hd0,msdos4)'
set isofile='/linux/porteus/Porteus-v2.1-x86_64/Porteus-DE-v2.1-x86_64.iso'
search --no-floppy --file --set=root $isofile
echo 'Loading Porteus'
loopback loop $isofile
linux (loop)/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz from=$isofile extramod=/mnt/sda4/linux/porteus/modules-v2.1-x86_64 cliexec=mount~-o~loop~/mnt/sda3/my.dat~/mnt/sda4/h/mounted/my norootcopy noload='other;Wine;w3' changes=EXIT:/mnt/sda4/h/psav-v2.1-ext4.dat
echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
initrd (loop)/boot/syslinux/initrd.xz
You have mind and feelings. Be wise and clever.
