Well I think that you're in just a bit over your head.....10 megs just
isn't enough space for muLinux however tiny it is.
At this time my UMSDOS install muLinux directory uses 40.9 Megs complete
(except maybe GCC addon).
The ext2 muLinux should require a bit less hard disk space due to
formatting differences.
I too use fdisk myself, as it's the standard across all the various
Linux distributions.(disk druid confuses the heck outta' me8^P)
As far as having to boot from a floppy....did you choose to install Lilo
in the master boot record???
muLinux EXT disk contains Lilo but I don't know if there's a utility
script to create the needed lilo.config file.
and yes you can install mulinux "over" RedHat.
if you require assistance it might be a bit better to do this off the
list unless others are interested, as I'm quite confident that this has
been hashed over a few times already.
Let me know

The more I use Linux, the harder Windows becomes to use. Point and click
software is too restrictive and difficult to do anything productive
