I've already remarked that yesterday as I would made an new mulinux
installation. Thank you for this information.
I deleted the linux folder under Win2000, but I couldn't delete it
completely, there were somme files from the Perl5 addon wich could not
to be deleted, so I overrride these files at the following installation.
But until yet there are no problems, my new 10r0 works.
