Hi everybody.
This is my first message on the forum, so I hope everything will go fine !

I have a problem with mulinux and my netword card :

> I have installed mulinux on a dos-16 FAT partition 63MB in "C:\MULINUX".
> I have dowloaded WKS and SRV modules
> I have ran UNPACK.BAT, followed by BOOT.BAT (no floppy required, a very
good point !!!)
> Everything works fine.

Do you have any idea ?
It'll be very helpfull, as I'm going to install it on about 25 computers !!!

Also, is there any way to protect the "C:\LINUX" from being modified when in
DOS mode ?

Thanks a lot,
