Re: [mu inst] minor problems

Unfortunately, I neither know what it means nor what I could do to
prevent or change it :(

As an add-on:

During instalation, option [1] says installation to floppy, option [2]
installation to the HD. Option [1] breaks off with the error message
'VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 02:3c', while option [2] _succeeds_
to install mulinux to the HD.

Installing mulinux to the HD is continued by the part where you need
to set a lot of parameters ... which I don't know and where I
discontinue, because the tutorials (that I found so far) explain the
follow-up of the floppy. While, if I don't set parameters, i.e. in
the /usr/bin part, mulinux breaks off with a segmentation error.

As far as I understood, mulinux is a great little system which is
set up to communicate with the world and, additionally, enables a lot
of other fascinating things. Of these I'd like to run f2c and gcc
(for fortran programming), a text editor and export (i.e. with the
'midnight commander') the results into something familiar like
'word' or such ...

Which leads to another problem: my Thinkpad's ESC key doesn't work
in mulinux's vi ( keyboard). Is there anything I could do about ?
