Here it comes. Not everything is checked, rewritten, because I first 
copied another version and adapted afterwards for my needs. Check 
default, that is working. All those using using #!/bin/busybox <some 
command> are working, tested (I wanted to enforce the busybox usage, 
because I had the "original" stuff too. As you'll see, I had problems 
with devfsd (this is "original", not busybox version, because I could not 
adapt the /etc/devfsd.conf file yet for busybox's devfsd). Any help?
There is also another problem with busybox's devfsd, it works only with 
"original" modprobe, not busybox one, if MODLOAD is used (autoloading of 

I have subscribed to the busybox list (too), maybe I'll some help there.

Also I have to check how it works with msh (to support uClinux too)
