Done quickly from memory, so sorry for any stupid errors...
put it in a text file & call it 'netaddon' or something suitable & 'chmod
a+x' it...

# Takes one argument, URL of addon to load

wget $1 /tmp/addon.tgz
mu -i /tmp/addon.tgz
rm /tmp/addon.tgz

All you need is ~1.7meg free under /tmp; which should be fine - /tmp
starts as a 4 meg ramdisk
