Hi doggieh
I thought  /tce  needs to be in the root directory.

That may be, but this is not Puppy. I think Tinycore expects to find  /tce  in the root of the partition.

Hi doggieh
vmlinuz  and  core.gz  can have paths, so this:
Code: [Select]
linux /tinycore/boot/vmlinuz
initrd /tinycore/boot/core.gz
is OK.
I'm not sure which line  tce=sda6  would go on with that version of grub.

Hi doggieh
Yes, add  opt=sda6 home=sda6  to the same line as  tce=sda6.
