From the Tiny Linux sourceforge page:
TinyLinux is a small Linux Distribution for i386 derived from SuSE 6.4. In the base version it just contains the things which are necessary to run Linux. Therefore the base package is rather small and requires approx. 7MB.
IMHO, if you have little or no experience of Linux then you would be hard pressed to find a more difficult distro to try and start with. Suggest you go here
and check out something like knoppix, mandrake or suse. Give yourself a chance!
