Hello Karl-Heinz!

I did'nt hear from you for a lot.

To moving toward a 2.2.x kernel was been a temptation for me many
times. I've setup a sort of muLinux with 2.2.5 kernel and works, with
PCMCIA, isapnp, a better sound support, etc. The big problem, as Karl-Heinz
pointed, is resources: a further 100K on the floppy, more RAM,
etc. A system like that run only on 486, with 8-16 Mega, I think.
The only solution I can see is to froze the actual muLinux as 386-muLinux
and start by scratch a new multi-floppy structure, assuming no RAM
