Thank you for you answer. My OS is MSDOS 5.0.
Actually I succeded to superformat 1722k the disk on a colleague machine
here at work. Then, back home, I succesfully run the mulinux
installation process, but when I choose "UMSDOS installation", after a
while I get something like "BOOT not found" (sorry about being so vague
- I wrote down everything but I left my notes at home :(
Can you help?

Kind regards, Cristian
