Thanks Enno for sugestion and Michele for the kind explanation.
As I allways don't know where I can find mu, I made TEX using a fractured method:
I created a directory where I unpacked dostools and copied mulinuxr81b and TEX.
 From DOS, I used install to untar mulinux and create mu in this directory.

As you can see I'm ready to work in Microsoft! (8-D)
Your 2 solutions are clearly more elegant but I am sure I will forget both next time I need mu.
