Don't delete the swap partition. Keep it to run Tiny Core.

Ubuntu 9.10 probably uses ext4. Is that correct? Format the partition with Ext3 for Tiny Core.

You can install Grub from Tiny Core, and it works.

For Windows XP, use:

title   Windows
root   (hd0,1)
savedefault
makeactive
chainloader   +1


For more information about installation, see:

Many people see what is. Some people see what can be, and make a difference.

Have you installed a sound package like alsa.tczl or OSS.tczm?

This is a two-step process. Download and install getFlash10.tcz. It will put an entry on the Applications menu. Then run that item.

nvidia drivers are propriatry drivers therefore not available for download on the TC WEB site. You can try Xorg first and see the result:
