-====== Install Microcore ====== 
  
-New users may find it easier install Tinycore, and become familiar with Tinycore before installing Microcore. For installation guides, see the [[start|Index]]. 
- 
-Microcore may be installed in a similar way to Tinycore, but with the following modifications. 
- 
-==== 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 the following additional extensions: 
- 
-Xlibs.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.

- 
-==== Try a Different Setup ==== 
-
