All I had to do was press the up-arrow to scroll through my
old commands. I could not do a set -o vi, to use my standard
<esc>-[k|j] to scroll through old commands though. It seems to
default to a pico-like set of controls for scrolling through
old commands

Yep, but one must add an additional floppy for this, true?
I was not under the impression that ssh was included on the
single-floppy version of MuLinux. Since I'm booting off of
just one floppy (for my dedicated router box), I can't really
use an additional floppy...

Perhaps I'm wrong, though, and ssh IS on the default floppy.
If so, I'll only need to reconfig MuLinux to load it :)

is complex is useless, and all that is useful is simple", and
this has been the motto of my life.
