I have been reading the documentation of BusyBox with the intention of using its small filesize to make a bootable cd.
The documentation states
To create a working system, just add /dev, /etc, and a Linux kernel.
I have used some linux Distro's such as Ubuntu and CentOS, when running cmds such as
fdisk a list of attached devices starting with /dev is usually returned, when running
ls on /etc we get some files show up.
I am confused at how/what I am supposed to add a /dev and /etc to BusyBox before booting up... Also I thought these would be added whilst in a running enviroment.
Are /dev and /etc to be perceived from a different view when spoken about in this manner, or have I just created a false view when using pre built Distros without understanding much of the underlying mechanics?
