busybox.net gives a good doc.

Basically it works like that:

1) compile a kernel

2) compile busybox (there's a menuconfig)

3) make an initrd (4096k should be enough) and mount it as a loop device

4) install busybox to the mountpoint of the initrd

5) zip the initrd

6) make a bootable CD using syslinux and setting the initrd parameter in

If you provide some webspace (you are working for a tv-channel, don't you),
I'll be glad to write a complete howto + make up the image. There might be
other people interested in this, and as your employer benefits from it,
they can sponsor this effort, can't they? ;-)
