I am trying to use Tiny Core as the OS for a fairly old embedded device using a Pentium 100 with 64MB Ram.
I managed to get the Tiny Core image loaded onto a 128MB CF card. When I turn the box on, it presents me the Grup screen and I can select the bootup option (tinycore). However, soon after I am getting a DMA Timeout Error.

Now, I am not familiar with Tiny Core all that well, and neither am I sure of how to modify the initramfs to include: hdparm -d0 /dev/hdb.
Well good news...I managed to solve it by adding an extra parameter to my kernel execution command in menu.lst. ide-core=nodma! That did the trick. Now to some other challenges...
