What about another approach: perhaps it would be more suitable for a
pure DOS-installation
to have a little DOS program that could do the job of the mu install

Maybe i am wrong(?) but at my opinion a small tool of about 30 KB
(e.g. written by me in good old Turbo Pascal 4.0) could do the same
job for us as the huge linux install kernel of about 300 KB?

What do you think about this idea? Please comment extensively!
