Did you tried using "makefd.bat"? It create a simple muLinux that
boot via syslinux. Maybe, this different bootloader may acts
differently for you.

The FAQ is a collection of question/answer I get from the mailing-list.
Yours is a tech question: to explains the install process will requires
the same number of lines (or much more) compared to read the scripts

In addition, what's the "install process"? Did you mean the
tecnological process that made the first floppy disk ("mu" script"),
or the process of copy the ramdisks in the hd? (/etc/rc/prep-floppy,
/etc/rc/prep-umsdos, /bin/clone, etc)
