It reminds me a lot of Puppy Linux.
Reading through it's philosophies, it looks like this distribution is not for me.
It will have poor documentation/support for hard drive installations.
It's also very, very, very simple. I just don't want to fuck around with my OS anymore.

fail: UNetbootin, multicore ISO ∞
UNetbootin with the multicore just gave me a menu with one item. Trying that one menu item just refreshed that same menu. =/

- My system can boot from a USB stick.
- You need p7zip
You cannot just use the root of a usb drive, you have to have a partition on it.
usb_drive=/dev/sdc usb_partition=1 usb_mountpoint=../usb_mountpoint usb=$usb_drive$usb_partition \wget distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/3.x/release/tinycore_3.8.iso \wget distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/3.x/release/tinycore_3.8.iso.md5.txt \wget grub4dos-chenall.googlecode.com/files/grub4dos-0.4.5b-2011-08-09.7z md5sum -c tinycore_3.8.iso.md5.txt \7za x grub4dos-0.4.5b-2011-08-09.7z \cd grub4dos-0.4.5b ./bootlace.com --time-out=0 $usb_drive mkfs.ext2 $usb_drive$usb_partition \mkdir $usb_mountpoint \mount $usb $usb_mountpoint \cp -f ../tinycore_3.8.iso $usb_mountpoint \cp -f ./grldr $usb_mountpoint menu_lst=$(cat <<'HEREDOC' find --set-root /tinycore.iso \nmap --mem /tinycore.iso (hd32) \nmap --hook \nroot (hd32) \nchainloader (hd32) HEREDOC) \rm -f $usb_mountpoint/menu.lst \echo $menu_lst > $usb_mountpoint/menu.lst \umount $usb_mountpoint \rmdir $usb_mountpoint
This wouldn't work. Booting up would just end up grinding on my floppy.

All three menu options:
tc, hang with no output.
