Sorry David: don't use MODULES.tgz in my site. This stuff is for 2.0.34
kernel. I upload the new archive later. Remember: muLinux >3.0 coming with
a 2.0.36 kernel. Ok, I rename this tgz in the future :)

setup can "insmod" a compressed module:

                setup -m module ( without .o) (see "setup -h")

You can add your module in archive.tgz with this steps:

[ from a working UMSDOS muLinux, or in tree/ dir for Linux installer]

        # cd /startup/modules
        # unpack
        # cp x.o .
        # repack


Mi sarebbe piaciuto concludere con un'affermazione positiva, ma
non me ne vengono in mente. Vanno bene due negative?
