I believe I followed it to the tee. The only thing I noticed is in the instructions it has an install option shown for grub. I didn't have that I just clicked on go.

Maybe I'll write all 0s to the drive and start all over. I'm trying to figure out what all this stuff is doing anyway.

That may be a good idea.

I couldn't agree more. The thing is I've been farting around with this everyday all week and still dont have a linux OS that boots from my hardrive. I just started on tinycore yesterday though.

Why don't you try the HD/USB install in the ControlPanel ?

I don't have any USB device to install with.

I managed to get puppy linux to boot from the hardrive (in fact I'm posting from that computer). I don't know whats going on with this swap file thing though. I thought I was suppose to have a swap partition on the hardrive. I get an error when I try to make one. I dont recall what it was though. I thought I remember something about mounting.
I was hoping for a little faster boot time and a little more increase in speed than win 2K. Ah well at least it works.

I still want to get tinycore working. I think I'll take a break for a day or 2.

It installs on USB or HD, not from.

I installed it from a CD just like I did (or tried) with the others I downloaded. Some of them seem to be a hopeless cause. Anything Unbuntu style seems to give me an SMBus no enabled error. Any of your guys know if that's a setting in the BIOS or something?

Meaning you have a working bootloader there.
You could just try that one with a configuration for TC, basically you have to pass the path of the initrd and the kernel to your bootloader (you could just copy the 2 files from mounted TC CD or .iso to HDD).
