This functions is not provided. I suggest you only a workaround which allow
you to copy muLinux in an EXT2 partition. muLinux cloned requires DOS
to start. If you have basic Linux experience, you have to put your LILO
on mbr,

You can clone first. Then, you can download the X11.tgz file and
put it in floppy-disk using:

                # fdformat /dev/fd0H1722

A this point:

                # setup -f X11

load the addon directly in the cloned system.
