        "ehh>" is the "standard" prompt for muLinux! It's not true that you
can't login as root: you can ONLY login as root!!!
        If you want, you can change the prompt in the "/etc/profile" file

        Have you "clone" it? Boot you system with muLinux disk(s), then from
prompt give the comand "clone", and after some easy questions, muLinux will
be copyed on your Hd, and "linux.bat" will be created!
