Which site(s) are you using as resources and what steps have you tried so far?

If the answer is "I don't know, nothing" then here is a good start:

I've taken a look at that site, but I don't see a choice for tinycore. Are one of the distros similar enough to work?

I've also taken a look at this site http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycoreli...tcz/index.html

I would be using virtualbox as an alternative to wine. I don't want to replace windows until I know virtualbox would work on it.

On the VirtualBox site, do you see where it says "All distributions i386 | AMD64"?

Or how about on the TinyCore site, "A Powerful x86 virtualization solution." "virtualbox-ose.tcz"

Have you read the basic TinyCore documentation on how to download/install new apps? http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycoreli...oad_howto.html

I doubt you could easily get tinycore to support a vm other than kvm/qemu.

Tinycore is a special distro. They did a lot to make it work on such a small system and older machines.

It you want an extreme low foot print then go with esxi from vmware.
