"1. Setup the USB stick

"I used a spare 32MB stick I had lying around. I kept things simple by sticking with one big partition covering the whole stick. I formatted it as FAT16 (there weren't enough sectors to create FAT32 - lol!)

"Next, I installed syslinux onto it, eg:

# apt-get install syslinux
# syslinux /dev/sdb

"2. Install TCL

"Then I download the .iso from the TCL web site and mount it as a loopback device e.g.:

# mkdir /mnt/tcl
# mount -t iso9660 tinycore_1.4.iso /mnt/tcl -o loop"
