Please, open the makefd.bat file: It contains only these rows:

echo off ^M
rem muLinux DOS makefd ^M
rename mul*.tgz mu.tgz^M
tar -xf mu.tgz^M
rawrite.exe -f syslinux.img -d A^M
copy root.gz a:^M
echo Put this floppy in the drive and reboot. ^M

I think you will find easily some OS/2 substitute for "rename", "copy"
"tar" and "rawrite" command.


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