        For muLinux is *normal* to be installed from DOS!!! There's the
"" for this. It's true, there's a faster/easyer way for who
already got a Linux Box (i don't know that way, I'm still with DOS...:( ),
bur muLinux can be istalled starting from DOS really easily!!! All you have
to do is to unzip the "" in a directory, unzip the file
"muLinux-ver.tgz" in THE SAME dir, and (if you've downloaded it) copy the
X11.tgz allways in that dir; then you've just to type install, that's all!!!
        Maybe I haven't undestood you; send me an e-mail and i will try to
help you or to explane you how muLinux DOS installation process works :)

        We are working on makeing averything as CLEAR as we can, translating
and creating new documents for helping anyone installing muLinux. Soon you
(you all) will be uble to understand how and what to do to create muLinux
disks in the simplest way :)
