Very possible.

Personally I am ALWAYS suspicious of loading Linux while windows is running, I might suggest opening a command prompt and reading the error by running the .bat file from there, but my first suggestion would always if you can be to do it from bootup instead of from windows, if that isnt a boot disk then that complicates things a bit obviously;)

From what I remember Puppy and DSL both aim for smaller distros for older machines, its been some time since i Had experience with either though, check to see what Puppy has for options to install new software, DSL I know is Debian based which means apt which is one of the better package managers out there, as long as Puppy has something decent I dont tihnk I would have much to say;)
