Several files are critical for installation, note their location in the CD-ROM image:
CD-ROM/boot/filesys.gz - ttylinux gzipped ext2 file system image
CD-ROM/boot/vmlinuz - gzipped ttylinux Linux kernel
CD-ROM/config/ttylinux-setup - user-maintained RAM disk startup

The ttylinux installation script automates the process of installing ttylinux; the scripts also copy the other documentation and information files to the new installed system.

For manual installation you can mount the CD-ROM or mount the CD-ROM image file via loop device for access to the critical files. The manual processes of installing ttylinux describes this in more detail.
