muLinux GCC disk works for mostly general-purpose C-program, but
the header files related to Linux /usr/include/linux are not complete.

Neverthless, if you download from the Net a Linux kernel, for example
2.0.36, and unpack it in a UMSDOS installation, you find in it the
complete include/linux tree. Copy it in right place and gcc work well.

GCC disk contains only a subsystem of wath is required for compiling
a Linux kernel: there is "make", there is "nm", "ldconfig", etc,
but kernel compiling tool require "bash". We have no bash, sorry.
You can do "module programming", if you want, with muLinux. Module
programming require only the header-files contained in the kernel
source code, and no external library.

Anycase, muLinux is projected for transportability.

I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
