-====== Install Microcore ====== 
  
-New users learning this for the first time will find it easier install Tiny Core first, and become familiar with Tiny Core before installing Microcore. 
- 
-Microcore may be installed in a similar way to Tiny Core, but with the following differences. 
- 
-==== Use microcore.gz instead of tinycore.gz ==== 
- 
-Use the microcore.gz file instead of the tinycore.gz file. 
- 
-In the bootloader, replace tinycore.gz with microcore.gz. If you use the installer, this should be done automatically. 
- 
-==== Install Additional Extensions ==== 
- 
-Install the following additional extensions: 
- 
-Xlibs.tcz 
- 
-Xprogs.tcz 
- 
-Xvesa.tcz 
- 
-flwm_topside.tcz 
- 
-wbar.tcz 
- 
-These extensions need to be in On Boot. If you are installing Microcore without being connected to the Internet, you may need to list them in /tce/onboot.lst with a text editor. 
- 
-Set up like this, Microcore will run the same as Tiny Core. 
- 
-==== Try a Different Setup ==== 
- 
-You may also try a different setup. 
- 
-For example, you may install a window manager other than flwm_topside.tcz. 
- 
-There are many other things which can be done with Microcore. It is up to you. 
- 
-==== Using Commands ==== 
- 
-Microcore can be run without a graphical interface. When run that way, you can perform tasks using commands in the terminal. Following are examples. 
- 
-To install an application, and put it in On Boot, use 
- 
-<code>tce-load -wi app_name.tcz</code> 
- 
-To install an application, and put it in On Demand, use 
- 
-<code>tce-load -wo app_name.tcz</code> 
- 
-To download an application to the /tce/optional directory, but not put it in On Boot or On Demand, use 
- 
-<code>tce-load -w app_name.tcz</code> 
- 
-
