I'll take some time this week end to try to write a first draft of that hint,
trying to keep it smaller and simplest as possible (not in my habits ;o).

I've already heard busybox, but never really took time to see what it is,
this time i grabbed and compiled it - that's great. I don't know if i'll use
it for ou initrd, but i can see a lot of nice possibility that i would have missed
without that excellent software. I'll try to include a version using it in the hint

ciao ;o)=
