Henning Heinold has done a lot with busybox on mips (debian installer)
Might this be due to kernel 2.4 and /proc/mounts includeing a / in front
of proc 

(flo@ping)~# cat /proc/mounts 
/dev/root / ext2 rw 0 0
proc /proc proc rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw 0 0
/dev/sda7 /usr ext2 rw 0 0
/dev/sda8 /var ext2 rw 0 0
/dev/sda9 /tmp ext2 rw 0 0
/dev/sda10 /home ext2 rw 0 0
/dev/hda5 /var/tmp ext3 rw 0 0
usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs rw 0 0
automount(pid19472) /mnt autofs rw 0 0
(flo@ping)~# uname -a
Linux ping.mediaways.net 2.2.18ext3 #1 Thu Dec 14 18:24:45 CET 2000 i686 unknown

Or 

flo@resume:~$ cat /proc/mounts 
/dev/root / ext2 rw 0 0
/proc /proc proc rw 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /home2 ext2 rw 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /home3 ext2 rw 0 0

shmfs /var/shm shm rw 0 0
devpts /home4/dev/pts devpts rw 0 0
proc /home4/proc proc rw 0 0
flo@resume:~$ uname -a
Linux resume.rfc822.org 2.4.0-test6 #2 Sun Aug 27 12:37:51 GMT 2000 mips unknown


Henning has fought with this IIRC.

     Why is it called "common sense" when nobody seems to have any?
