Thanks for your detailed answers.
If I got it right best start for a newbie with a cheap 1 GB RAM Windows homePC like me seems to be:
- either experiment with usb to create a kind of independent rescue install
- or install Virtual Box with GAs to work with Windows and Tinycore in parallel
I searched for a virtual disk image which could simplify the creation of a Tinycore system within Virtual Box and possibly found a link: [removed: remaster]
Has anyone got experience whether that file can be used not only for browsing but to create a virtual system with folder sharing, file manager etc working 'within less than an hour' for a newbie like me what is the argument there.
