Quickstart on making the Busybox boot-floppy:
1) Download Busybox and uClibc from CVS or tarballs. Make sure they share a
common parent directory. (i.e. busybox/ and uclibc/ are both right off of
/tmp, or wherever.)
2) Build a Linux kernel. Make sure you include support for initrd.
3) Put a floppy in the drive. Make sure it is a floppy you don't care about
because the contents will be overwritten.
4) As root, type ./mksyslinux.sh path/to/linux/kernel from this directory.
Wait patiently while the magic happens.
5) Boot up on the floppy.
