+<h2><a name="init">Busybox init isn't working!</a></h2>
+<p>
+ Build a statically linked version of the following "hello world" program
+ with your cross compiler toolchain.
+</p>
+<pre>
+#include &lt;stdio.h&gt;
+
+int main(int argc, char *argv)
+{
+ printf("Hello world!\n");
+ sleep(999999999);
+}
+</pre>
+
+<p>
+ Now try to boot your device with an "init=" argument pointing to your
+ hello world program. Did you see the hello world message? Until you
+ do, don't bother messing with busybox init.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+ Once you've got it working statically linked, try getting it to work
+ dynamically linked. Then read the FAQ entry before this one.
