I don't completely understand this, but it's related to something
I'm trying to solve. But first let me ask why would I want to play
with mulinux instead of a 'proper' linux ?

Because I can carry a single fd0 (I like to take WKS also for mc) to
someones machine and do 'stuff'.

Specifically: I've got 5 hdas, all no longer DOS bootable which I have
to boot via fd0 (mostly for oberon - my prefered OS) !
I tried to put a partition for my friend, for linux.
Now we can't reinstall his W95, because of not-DOSbootable !

With mulinux I can simply extract the MBRs from other DOSbootable
machine(s). I hope ? {BTW DOS: fdisk.exe \mbr fails if fdisk.exe fails}
