"mu" itself is in the mulinux.tgz archive. You can mount the partition from
mulinux and use "mu" from muLinux itself.
The problem: if you unpacked in vfat, "mu" do not work, because UNIX use
something like symlinks etc, not supported in vfat.

If you have a spare partition in your system, create an EXT2FS filesystem
on it:

                # mkfs.ext2 /dev/hdb8
                # mount /dev/hdb8 /mnt

Assuming your vfat mounted on /c, you can copy with:

                # cp -a /c/mulinux /mnt

(I assume "mulinux" as temporary installing directory on WIndows).

A this point, cd /mnt/mulinux and use "mu" to rebuild muLinux and
customize it.


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