Gulp! The most bizzarre request I got, because muLinux is already
little: you have in two floppies (BASE+EXT) a little Linux with
Samba, FTP WU, etc.

It's probably not possible to put the kernel and Samba in a single floppy,
but you can easy do a try, because I provided the script "mu" I used
to rebuild the published images.


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