You try to clone UMSDOS->LOOP? I think it may be dangerous.
/bin/clone is projected to clone always from RAM.

I cannot figure what may happen when you try to clone your UMSDOS
installation in this way: this script is a little complex. Your HD
is already mounted as /, and clone try to remount it for create
the loop filesystem.

Please, for the sake of the humanity, make the two diskette and
try to clone from a ram muLinux: to keep trace of repliclants is
very difficult!

Note: you have to install the boot load in the dos partition.
Installing in floppy disk do not works.
