No, thank to you, really. I just found something missing, but did not know
if that was THE bug.
Now I have tried two times with success this metod of installation
(deleting the direcory between tests):
Starting in the DOS mulinux directory with only mulinux.tgz and WKS.tgz
- booting (boot.bat); choosing to uncompress and install the image
        files in c:\linux
- Booting (linux.bat) in c:\linux - but stopping in Maintainance mode.
- Creating the directories /var/run and /varspool/mail. (I found that these
two was enough.
- "Exit " to get to the remaining part of the setup.
No more hanging!

I leave it to the programming wizards to make it easier than this...
