How do I blow up boxes of TNT in minecraft classic?

I just tried playing on the website and tried minecraft-classic since it is free (yet outdated). Within the game one of the blocks I can use is TNT.

Tutorials mention redstone but I don't seem to have it. How can I blow up these boxes of TNT?

Just to let you know, Minecraft Classic is really outdated, and pretty much everything you read online nowadays will not apply to it. – Macha Apr 15 '12 at 22:12

You can't detonate TNT in Minecraft Classic. Redstone, and indeed exploding TNT, are features that were just not implemented at this point.

The block is there, but if I remember correctly, the functionality of activating it by punching was added in the Survival Test version, i.e. the version directly after the current Classic version. Redstone was also added at a later date (Alpha 1.0.1, according to the wiki).
