OK, I did the test, on my Vbox XP virtual machine. I hope I remember all the comments.
1. From previous knowledge I knew to download the .iso as well as tc-grub4dos.gz. At the moment this info is quite obscure in the wiki. I think it ought to be somewhere a lot more prominent. Perhaps as a separate wiki main heading? I took the liberty of editing the wiki page, Guy. If this is unacceptable, please accept my apology and restore. I still have some things to do there.
2. It would be great if there was a wbar icon for starting this process, instead of using a terminal. We may be dealing with linux neophytes without the faintest clue of what to do next.
3. The first time round, I tried doing it without the wiki and immediately failed - I didn't know what to do after loading the starter pack. I fumbled a bit, created /tce and then proceeded with the process, which failed when it tried to umount and mount. I think that was because /tce existed and was in use.
4. So I deleted /tce and rebooted, starting from scratch again. This time I referred to the wiki.
5. The GUI is confusing in several areas: What is embedded vs frugal?
6. The select version to install confusingly opens the root file system. A newbie is going to be completely bewildered by this. I mean, I was! After a moment of thought I concluded it wanted the tinycore.gz file so I navigated to /mnt/hc1 to find the cd's boot dir. I would propose the GUI goes there automatically.
7. Correct me if I'm wrong, but you can't spec persistent /home and /opt on a NTFS drive, so these options should not even be there. I did actually pick them but on looking for them on the Windows drive, could not find them until I remembered this issue.
8. At the final screen, there is an additional button, 'prodeed'. Ditch this and for the sake of consistency, use the play button again.
9. At the end of the process, it seems as if the GUI hangs. There should be a firm ending message with a close button or something.
This is a great piece of work! I wanted this 2 years ago!
