Hi everybody!

Ok, I understand now what I was doing wrong, I only need ONE file called "mulinux-12r2.tgz" what I did was to download ALL the files from the folder "CURRENT" so when I executed "unpack" it wanted to unpack all files......

but I still have a problem, when I try to clone MuLinux to my harddrive it looks like this:
I execute: CLONE
-I do the fdisk thing
-I choose where the files shoud be store /dev/hda1
-I I choose to have lilo

and finally it says:
I have to choose where to store LILO in /dev/fd0 or in my harddrive, I want to have it on my harddrive so I choose: /dev/hda1
I even tested /dev/hda but without success, I got this message:


Please help me!

> OK, I choose anyway the /dev/fd0 alternative, then the creation of the boot,root,usr disk starts but it fails when MuLinux try to create the boot disk it saids fdformat does not exist!
> Then I verify that and boot again but with a DOS startdisket and fdformat exist! in C:\mulinux
