Core needs to be compiled for each specific target.
Unless there is a released version for your specific hardware with instructions, you don't.

I know it is arm based and I am setting up the Dev environment[1]
I forgot to say debian[2] can run on the hardware

Just a flat out copy....no.  You would have to master your own copy, and then move the bootable image to the device.

This is a good basic how to post.   http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,17895.0.html

Understanding the boot process of the device, and availability of the kernel source are the 2 first steps.
