Oh, but they are only examples.

Manually, sorry. The emails are in /var/spool/mail/root.
To handle a second floppy-disk, while muLinux handle the startup disk
with evident difficulty, may produce further confusion.

You can
                # mount /dev/fd0 /a -t msdos
                # cp /var/spool/mail/root /a
                # umount /a


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