Perfect! you made the TEX addons in the same way I did and published.

Yours it is THE solution. But you can save a reboot in DOS,
if you unpack mulinux.tgz with muLinux itself:

        # gzip -dc mulinux.tgz | tar -xf -

Also, you can to explode the root.gz, USR.gz and ALL addon in the
tree/ subdirectory using "mu -u"

        # mu -u

Now you can go in tree/ and change what you whish. Then,

you repack all with "mu -r" and start from beginning.


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