Hello R.V.,
this is the MD5 signature for X11.tgz

        4760069607cb297614b44aa0e1d3a31c X11.tgz

Anycase, "Bus Error" sounds a very *inner* kind of errors: floppy

Try to create this addons from muLinux itself.

        # -- put a blank disk in the drive --
        # fdformat /dev/fd0H1722
        # -- locate the IDE disk with X11.tgz archive --
        # mount /dev/hdaX /mnt
        # cd /mnt/mulinux
        # cat X11.tgz > /dev/fd0H1722

If you want, test X11 integrity:

        # cat X11.tgz | bzip2 -st
