At the end of the article you mention creating a busybox-init setup. I was running one for quite a while which was pretty simple to setup. There are/were patches for converting the init scripts (etc) to use dash rather than bash, and from there it's pretty simple to convert to ash. I current use the busybox init, and posted the init tab to http://codepad.org/fcKtgAbQ if it's of any use (pretty easy to figure out though, but meh :) ). Cheers
Neat! Thanks! I will check it out and try to make something out of it. It would be cool if people could opt for a completely Busybox-based system while still mantaining Arch compatibility.
