After some trials, it happens that the default configuration in /boot/grub/grub.cfg is not looking for the right files, the splash is missing, etc. It seems that it is a bug in the "make-live-device.sh" script.

The bug is when downloading puredyne-911-carrot_and_corriander-DVD-i386.iso and using the script from Ubuntu 10.10, and following tutorial on this webpage:
 - http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Puredyne/Creating_a_live_USB_stick

In order to fix the problems, using sudo:
 - copy and rename the file /isolinux/splash.png form the iso or the cd, to /boot/grub/grubsplash-puredyne-logo-simple.png
 - edit the file /boot/grub/grub.cfg and change "set root=(hd0,1)" to "set root=(hd0,0)" ; "linux /live/vmlinuz1" to ""linux /live/vmlinuz" ; "initrd /live/initrd1.img" to "initrd /live/initrd.img"

Then, you have to edit the "menuentry" lines, just keep "Puredyne" and "Puredyne Failsafe Mode"

Changed in puredyne-live:
status: New → Won't Fix
status: Won't Fix → In Progress
