Your question is not very clear.

Have you installed on a hard drive or usb drive?

If you have installed on a hard drive, include "opt=sda1 home=sda1" in Grub. Change sda1 to the partition you are using.

If you have installed on a usb drive, use backup.
Many people see what is. Some people see what can be, and make a difference.

It depends on which version of Grub you are using.

If you are using Grub legacy, open the file /mnt/sda1/boot/grub/menu.lst, and edit it. Change sda1 to whatever partition you are using.

Edit the boot options to be something like this:

Quote
title   Tiny Core 3.3
root   (hd0,0)
kernel   /tinycore_3.3/bzImage quiet tce=sda1 opt=sda1 home=sda1
initrd   /tinycore_3.3/tinycore.gz

Change sda1 to whatever partition you are using. Notice it is in a few places.

If you also use backup, you can later edit /opt/.filetool.lst to remove all references to the opt and home directories.

You can edit this using a root text editor.
Open the terminal and type "sudo fluff" Go to /mnt/sda1/boot/grub/menu.lst. Highlight menu.lst, and click Edit.
This is only for version 3.3. If you are using an earlier version, you need another method of editing this file.

If you are using Grub 2, the process is completely different. If you are, let us know.

Edit /opt/.filetool.lst and include everything you want saved. Remove references to home and opt, as they are now saved in their directories.

When you shut down, backup your files.


It is best to start with the simplest method. Another method, which you may want to try later, is to make new extensions for anything you want saved, not in home or opt.

It should happen automatically.

When you shut down the computer, you will see Backup Options. If it shows a directory, it will backup.

If something is not right, you can select a directory in the control panel.
