Tiny Linux with Wine

Is there any distro that can fit on a 190MB 8cm CD-ROM (this is important) and that has Wine preinstalled? Neither Puppy nor DSL have it. Remastering the distro seems an awful lot of work for such a small requirement, and I can't install the program elsewhere because the machine that'll run it has no hard drive.

Chances are there may be others who would like a distro like that. Why don't you remaster? If remastering is within your skill level then why not do it. Then release it for others to enjoy (if you wish). Give something back instead of waiting for others to provide. I'm just saying....

Ah, Tinycore can do that and more...
You can make a livecd with the apps preinstalled.

Tinycore uses extensions called TCE's and TCZ's
I prefer the tce's.
You may read this post for more info-

I am getting ready to upload the Awesome Tinycore-1.4.3-USB I have just finished.
It has Flavor Modules, which are actually VirtualHardDrives.

I know, it confuses me too...
My Tinycore USB is premade to run from either a FAT16/32 USB booting with Syslinux or a EXT2/3 USB booting via Grub
Anyway, the instructions are here-

My TC-USB will be ready within the hour, look for the post or at my site.
