Announcing a build of Tiny Core Linux for XO-1.5 based on the kernel
from OLPC OS 10.1.3 build os361.

I've found this useful for testing and diagnosis without touching the
internal storage.  I've added a few scripts for backing up and


- based on Tiny Core Linux 3.4 microcore variant, configured for a
  single root shell in text mode,

- uses the OLPC kernel, for hardware support,

- includes the wireless firmware shipped with OLPC builds, and binary
  redistribution of wireless tools from the same builds,

- includes xo-backup, xo-repart, and xo-restore scripts, (these may be
  destructive, look at them first),
