Tiny Core file architecture diagrams

The following are links to diagrams that will allow you to visualize how Tinycore works in its various modes. Special thanks go out to ixbrian for taking the time to create them.

TCZ Mount mode architecture: http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/architecture.html

TCZ Copy mode architecture: http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/arch_copymode.html

SCM architecture: http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/arch_scm.html

Full System TCZ/SCM architecture: http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/arch_core.html

These diagrams should help you to not only get a better understanding of how Tinycore works, but also how Tinycore differs from a standard Linux installation.
