* New tc-install.sh replaces usbinstall - added frugal install to partition with formatting options.
I read that on DW. Does that refer to frugal install on NTFS formatted HDD?

No

Tiny Core is ideally run on a Ext2/3/4 filesystem.

While not ideal, some people run it on FAT16/32.

People have run it on ntfs after remastering. This is not ideal, and most inexperienced users would find it too difficult.

The installer now has more options, and makes installation easier for new users.

See some of the installation guides in the wiki index. http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:start

Thanks! Then I have to pray to the Linux Gods and hope for their mercy and compassion to us on NTFS partitions. I bow out with a friendly smile.
