Thank you Mark! :-)

First I want to try out muLinux... maybe with the background of a
different Linux on my HD your hint may help me!

... Once I was glad to own an old Apple IIe. It was my first computer -
and I think now that I had more 'fun' with that 64 KB RAM than with
the 'non-rustic-systems' that I owned after it...
I don't know why - maybe it's sentimental ? But perhaps it's like if
you read a book: Normaly the first page to read is ugly - maby the
first chapter... You creep inside after a while ... ;-)
