This question is in the FAQ, in some instance. Anycase,
I will add again, becasue "repetita juvant".
Recent muLinux can load addons also from a file. For example, if
the user has cloned using the UMSDOS flavor, and the archive X11.tgz is
the directory c:\mulinux (for example), it can be loaded with:

                # setup -f X11 from=/DOS/mulinux/X11.tgz
